Toilet training the child can be a very difficult task for some people. This is because of the anxiety of the parents to teach the child an important habit. The problem faced by most parents is that the toilet training may not be really successful because of various reasons. The correct method of toilet training the child is seen in this article.

1. Toilet train only if the child is ready: The normal age for toilet training is from the age of two to about three. Girls learn toilet training more quickly than boys. Though the mentioned age is the most common age group where the child learns toilet training, there are some children who learn toilet training only in their fourth year. This need not be abnormal. So parents should give time for the child to learn toilet training.

2. Routine: The child first learns toilet training when the parents put the child in the potty when they think that the child is going to defecate or void urine. This may become a routine. Even if a proper routine cannot be followed, the parents can notice that the child needs to use the potty at a particular time of the day. Placing the child in the potty at that time can also be a routine that can be followed to toilet train the child.

3. Explain: Explaining to the child that undressing and using the potty is a natural thing to do and all members of the family do it every day will take away some of the fear the child has of the potty. (Some children can be very scared to sit in the potty). Explaining can have a positive effect on the child, though not immediately.

4. Independent use: Encourage the child to use the potty on his own. This may not be easy initially. Some children learn this at a very early age. Encouraging the child to use the potty independently can make the child to have a regular routine. This independent using of the potty is for children who are more than three years of age. This is because children who are less than three may not be really able to use the potty independently.

5. Do not try too hard: Some parents try really hard to potty train and toilet train their child. This causes more pressure on the child and the learning becomes delayed. These parents have to take it slowly and take time to make their children learn. If the child is not ready for toilet training, then the training can be suspended for a month and then tried again. This can go on till the child learns toilet training.

6. Night training: The potty training and toilet training for the child during daytime is the first hurdle. Once the child is able to either use the toilet or the potty when necessary, the first hurdle is crossed. The next stage is training the child to be dry at night. This can also take some time and the parents have to be patient.

After the child has been toilet trained, the parents can heave a sigh of relief as they have decreased work load and they have accomplished an important milestone of toilet training along with their child.
