How to teach a child to potty

Many parents care about their child as early as possible “sat on the potty.” And starting early to potty train, many of them fail, blaming it on just your baby. But was he really?

Some parents are trying to teach your child to potty as soon as he started to sit up, trying to get rid of Laundry and diapers, others, on the contrary, in no hurry, and their child at the right time a few days he suddenly sits to the right place.

Why is this happening? And the thing is that every baby has periods most sensitive to the development in that skill associated with the maturation of organs and systems of the body. Toilet training of the child must involve a sufficient period of strengthening the walls of the bladder, nervous system development and certain centers of the brain. And it happens not before 1 year 4 months. I note that this is the average age, in fact some children begin to control the processes of urination and defecation a little earlier and others a little later, but in any case, they all go through the same stages of development.

By the way, it should be noted that those parents who try to teach your toddler to use a toilet too early, often wait too early successes from him in other areas of development. Continue reading

Therefore, as a rule, children who refuse to rest during the day, more than compensate for his good night. However, this is true only for kids who don’t suffer nervous breakdowns, inadequate behavior, moodiness and irritability.

Doctors say that we need through the power and screaming to get the kid to sleep alone.

If a child — a boy age 7 months — sleeping with parents in the same bed, and in his bed he starts screaming and falls asleep. If it continues he will continue to sleep with their parents, whether it can affect him negatively in the future? Or you need to teach him to sleep separately?

Dear S.!

So, the dilemma: on the one hand — what the child wants, on the other hand — that claim doctor (for fear that you may accidentally crush the child, not g-d forbid). And “poor” parents between them.

Let’s agree: parents are not so poor, and they — and only they, considering all pros and cons, — make a decision and doing it. And the child will have to live with it. (Not so long ago in America, published a book by the noted psychologist about how important it is for the child to sleep with their parents. So the huge range of opinions).
