Potty training a toddler requires patience and consistency. Factors that will influence potty training success should be considered before the process begins. The age of the toddler is one small part of the process. Toddlers reach potty training readiness at different ages, so other factors may be more important. Your toddler's maturity level, interest in using the potty, physical development, ability to stay dry and ability to follow directions contribute to the success of toilet training. Follow your toddler's lead, paying close attention to his reactions to your guidance.
