To Train or Not To Train

To Train or Not To Train? That’s the First Question

The first question I always get asked by parents is “Do you think my child is ready to start potty training?”
Helping parents determine if their child is ready starts with the Child Readiness Assessment.
Here are the FOUR areas we look at and a few of the specific questions we ask:

Bladder Control


  • Does your child hold their urine and release it all at one time in a large amount?
  • Does your child stay dry for many hours at a time when in a diaper?
  • Does your child stop what they are doing to urinate or have a bowel movement in their diaper?


Physical Coordination


  • Can your child walk to the toilet independently?
  • Can your child dress themselves or push pants down and pull pants up?
  • Can your child sit in one spot for at least 10 minutes?


Following Directions


  • Can your child identify their own body parts?
  • Does your child follow instructions for actions such as “stand up”, “sit down”, “come here”?
  • Does your child follow instructions such as “Put this (object) (location)” or “Bring me the (object)”?


Interest in The Potty and Independence


  • Does your child want to watch you use the toilet or help you flush?
  • Does your child talk about using the potty with you?
  • Does your child want to do things on their own?


The Child Readiness Assessment gives us a good look at your child’s readiness skills.

What if your child has most of these skills but not all?

A parent questionnaire and interview is another tool that is used to help decide if a child is ready to begin toilet training. The parent interview and questionnaire takes a look at the child’s social, emotional, and behavioral skills as well as environmental factors.

All these skill areas come into play when determining if your child and YOU are ready to begin the potty training journey.  

Still asking yourself “Is my child ready for potty training?”


Speaking to a Potty Coach may make answering this question a little easier.

In response, she established the Future From Waste Lab in Melbourne, a factory in miniature where some of that discarded fashion can be rehabbed and put to new Nike x Travis Scott Sneakers use. The patchwork denim pieces in her new lineup are made from 100% pre owned jeans. She paired it with a button-up dress and cowboy boots. Willow recognizes that systemic change is needed. It's sexy and innocent in an almost terrifying way. Milan is once again filled with an array of editors, models, and even national soccer players who've come with their FFP2 masks in hand to attend the week's biggest menswear shows and presentations, from more. By combing the archives for all the must-have silhouettes such a capsule requires, Lucky Brand ensured every perfect denim fit you've ever been on the hunt for is represented. Taking cues from the runway, we saw retro inspired prints on mesh separates at Anna Sui mismatched with crochet. The question I posed to myself and the design team here is, What Amiri Shirts if Africa was the birthplace of couture?' I think about that a lot. Giant yarns made up knits, some looks were pleated to resemble a slinky, and one preppy sweater was molded into a literal ball it's more comfortable than you would think, said the model wearing it. It was all densely layered and piled up on precarious heels composed of schoolhouse blocks spelling out . The contrast invigorated her, like an elastic band pulled tight and about to snap back with a build up of energy, she said. Many of us own these joggers Nike x Off-White and are absolutely in love with them. What first sold us was that reviewers mentioned how Alexander McQueen Shoes similar these are Golden Goose Outlet to Lululemon's On The Fly jogger, which cost Off White Sneakers about three times more. After a three year pandemic hiatus, Coachella 2022 marked the return of in-person festivals on April 15.
