Not necessarily i just thought it was the norm bc its what ive been subjected to. I was taught if a child can walk and talk then they can use the bathroom as well. Apparently other people were taught differently.

Who taught you this? lol This is absolutely not based in any type of early childhood development training.

Okay? Why are you basing your opinion on the few children you've been around? That's just ignorant. If you're going to have an opinion, have an educated one.

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.

Pediatricians even tell you there are 4 steps to being ready to potty train. Not just walking and talking.



My son can walk and talk but there is a communication barrier as well as an understanding.

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