Meanwhile, entering the age of two when your child begins to control when urinating and defecating. You also need to remember, that teaching toilet training too late is not good for your child either. So you have to know the right time to use the toilet before teaching the correct methods.
These are the signs that your child is ready to do toilet training:
1. Beginning with physical signs, namely the ability to walk and even run even steadily. Furthermore, your child can urinate regularly and predictably. Finally, by not urinating for less than two hours so that the bladder muscles can hold the urine in your child.
2. Then the cognitive signs that you can recognize include understanding the signs that he already understands that he has to go to the toilet and tells you before urinating. Then your child can understand and put something in its place and finally your child can have the term for urinating and defecating when he is about to do it.
