You would think that after all of our scientific advancements that we would be able to master the task of potty training small children.
But of course, you would be wrong. Every child is so different. Even in my clan of four kids, every single child has responded to a different form of potty training. For one child, sticker charts were the key to a diaper-free existence, for another, she was proud just to do it on her own, and for another, we haven't been able to move past naptime dryness, despite our best bribes—I mean, "attempts." The point is, potty training can seem like a mystery, but luckily, there are a few signs to help us confused parents know if our child might be ready to start the potty training process.
