This may be the moment you’ve been waiting for, or maybe it’s the one you’re dreading: Potty training. Most kids are ready to begin toilet training sometime between the ages of two and three. If your child can stay dry for a couple of hours, lets you know when his diaper is wet or soiled or shows an interest in using the potty, he’s probably ready. Keep the motivation positive and pressure-free. Kids this age learn best by example, so take him into the bathroom with you when you go (if you feel comfortable with that). Even better? Point out older friends or siblings who use the potty, and talk it up!
