I never have anything to say about potty training in community posts. Both of mine were trained with little fanfare before 2. And largely without intervention from me - all I did was provide an appropriate receptacle, clap a few times for success and viola, done.

Good luck world.

And btw, I did not potty train my children to make other women feel bad, nor do either of them have recurrent bladder infections or behavior problems or any of the other dire consequences proponents of later training promise. My kids were ready, I let them learn.

Actually, that seems to be my whole philosophy. Kids seem ready for x,y or z. Let them try. If succeed - cheer and praise. If not, comfort and try again.

Kids are not the hard part of my life.

Is this coming up in p101 stuff again, or somewhere else?

Aha. I saw. And commented.

Definitely a "when they're ready it'll just work" thing. Though, just taking away the diapers does do an awful lot to get a lot of kids ready...

It's just everywhere - and I realized that I have nothing to add. Kid displays awareness of function. Take diapers away. Buy paper towels. Viola - potty trained.

And it goes for so many other things - let them try and cheer success and comfort fail.
