We all go through it sometime. But, the question is: when? An urbanMama recently emailed about her daughter showing interest in the potty, wondering whether this was the right time and age to start:
My daughter, Uma, is showing more and more interest in the bathroom and specifically the toilet--naturally I am racked with panic and doubt about my ability to potty train her. What should I get to start off with, one of those mini kid toilets or a seat with a step stool so she can use the regular toilet. What age is really the time to start? She is only 21 months, but she like to rip off the toilet paper and flush the toilet for us, so that is supposed to be a sign?
Then, once we've decided that the time to start potty training has come, how did you go about doing it?
