Usually parents in the midst of potty training their toddler are the ones asking this question: how long should potty training take?
And, usually these parents are asking it because they feel like it might be taking them a bit too long (um, like, having been at it for over 6 months now).
Today I will demystify the timeframes involved with toilet training your youngster and reaching complete independence (two very different phases of the whole process).
This video is only 4 minutes long. If you don’t like changing diapers, you’ve definitely got time for this:
In it, you’ll learn:
- how long it should take to get thru the potty training experience
- how long it should take to get from “trained” to “independent”
- the one thing you should not go back to, once you’ve begun, and
- the hardest part about potty training (you’d be surprised).
If you’re contemplating potty training, in the middle of it, or wrapping up EC with PT, this video is definitely for you.
After you’re done watching…
please share with us in the comments below how long you’ve been at potty training, and how much longer (after watching this video) you plan on taking to wrap it up.
(Or share that you’re struggling. Or you’re done. Or something totally else!)
I look forward to seeing where everyone’s at. And remember...this is a judgment-free zone! Feel free to be completely honest!
