The best time to begin toilet training is when the child is ready to learn. Most children are ready between 2 and 3 years of age. By this age they are competent, confident, and comfortable enough for successful toilet training. However, children will be ready at their won pace, not when parents or day care centers want them to be. The child’s behavior is often a better guide than the child’s age. It is best to start toilet training when the child lets you know when diapers need to be changed because they prefer dry diapers.
