Over lunch this week, a friend asked, “How is work going?” I responded, “It’s busy. It’s Potty Learning season.” We both laughed at the term, and she asked why would there be a season for such a thing. The truth is, summer is such a perfect time to start the potty learning process. First, it is a time of year you can let your child go bare-bottomed. This often makes the process move more quickly, as a child without pants and underwear (or diaper) can more easily feel a trickle down his leg, and is less hindered when he actually makes it to the potty. Secondly, many parents are trying to get a jump start before school is in session in the fall. Many schools now have the requirement that children be potty trained, or well on their way. So, I formally am declaring summer: Potty Learning Season 😉 (although I strongly believe potty learning should start any time of year that your find yourself ready)
