Quoting proudlypreggers:" The response i was expecting were people opinions that vary. and yes his "daughter""


I think the consensus is that kids potty train when ready and not at a certain age.



D&D fail.

She doesn't wake up at all. She has had many showers because she is covered in pee from head to toe. I feel so bad for her and you can tell she is frustrated. She tells me all the time she wants to wear underwear like a big girl. I let her do it but then when she wakes up covered in pee she is so upset. I had people tell me I should spank her for it or make her lay in it to show her is it wrong and that is how their kids potty trained. I prefer to calm relaxed approach. My brother wet the bed til 8 so I am not too worried about it. I hope the public pottying resolves itself soon though.

Maybe their kids were ready at 2-3? Soooo, that would be when they are ready, right? I'm not making it personal at all. Your opinion was that some people potty train "too late". But that would be implying the parent was lazy and didn't work at it right? That's hardly the case most of the time though.



If your stepdaughter is still not potty trained, maybe she's just not ready. Or maybe she has a special need that hasn't been detected and needs evaluation? Is that what you are worried about?

Yeah definitely don't listen to them. I think you are doing way you should, I know when I was a bed wetter it was shameful to me and my parents being nice and calm made me feel a lot better.

Yes i said imo kinda late. Thats how i feel about the situation. Everyone is not gonna feel the same and yes there are "lazy" moms out there but it doesnt apply to everyone. I was asking for a round about age that people at least started trying to potty train. Maybe i shouldve said special needs children dont apply to my theory only bc some special needs kids will never use the restroom. All they will ever know is a diaper.

Quoting ☾BizzyBee♉:" Trust me, very very few moms will NOT potty train out of laziness. It's easier having underwear you wash rather than spending 60 bucks or more a month on diapers or pull ups and wipes. "


This is the main reason i began to train. My kids were born close together and it became very expensive. Maybe it was forced but it worked out for the best in the end.

Then what exactly does it have to do with? People agree with me and they agree with you. Neither side of the arguement is fucked up.

Just do it when they're ready.



My SIL started potty training my niece on her 2nd birthday. She was not ready at all. She is almost 3 and still has accidents EVERY DAY. What a nightmare.

If you had actually read through instead of skimmed you wouldve saw i said maybe i shouldve said it doesnt apply to special needs children. Or is it that you just like to keep drama going? :o
