Quoting Jas ♥:" Right? Isaiah was walking and talking at 9 months, I must be super lazy. Boy should be potty trained by now."


My 13 month old would rather put his trucks in the toilet than sit on it. He does like to deuce in the bathtub though. He thinks it's hilarious! lol

My son is 2.5, not SN, and still isn't PT'd. He's actually walking around the house completely naked right now and hasn't had an accident once, but refuses to pee or poop in the potty. I just decided to start this again today, I've tried several times in the past and nothing has come of it.



I try for a few days and if it doesn't work, then I give it a break for a few weeks. He isn't ready and I think it's normal.

I think most people (including me) voted 2-3 because that is simply the AVERAGE age.

Well then the smart thing would be to think maybe there is something going on there. I mean you can't assume to know what is going on in each child's life. No parent is addicted to changing diapers and potty training isn't something you should force.

Well if I judged all potty training by my experience I would say you and your kids are slackers.

Well according to the poll 2 is an appropriate time to start training and i started maybe right before the 2nd birthday and by 3 they were fully potty trained meaning no more accidents so i dont understand how you see that as slacking but meh thats your opinion. I have encountered some lazy moms that will sit and watch tv all day instead of spending time with their children and teaching them. You would jump to conclude something may be wrong with the child when nothing may be wrong at all they may just have a lazy parent. They do exist ya know. I dont assume i know every child this is why this question was asked.

So because you have an anonymous poll, that gives you a clear cut indication into the correct age for all children.

And no I don't assume late training children have lazy parents. Lazy parents don't like changing diapers. Parents who listen to their kids cues don't mind paying the extra money to buy diapers so that they can work with their kids.

Anonymous or otherwise its still a poll of others thoughts.... Either way you obviously never been around a mom with a 4 year old walking around with a sagging diaper and the mother is just sitting there not doing anything. Whether what i did was "forced" or not it got done without any issues. My kids arent scarred or damaged (what a shocker right). Back in the day you rarely really saw a child past the age of 2 in a diaper but this new generation of moms... lol you enjoy your day.

The problem there is not the potty training, its parental neglect. Leaving a child in a dirty diaper is a health hazard. Parents who wait on potty training their children aren't neglectful. And this back in the day bullshit is dumb. Some kids have a harder time training. You sound so incredibly ignorant and are still overlooking the fact that there could be some extenuating circumstances.



Its potty training ffs, your kids aren't curing world hunger. No you don't get any amazing award or special consideration forcing your kids to train sooner.
