[Music] Let’s talk about when to start toilet training your child. I typically recommend starting potty training around the age of two for most children, unless they show interest at an earlier age then you can start then. But typically, I like to start around two because they're capable of understanding the process. They're capable of learning the new skill and they're a lot more rational than say a 15-month-old. Certainly if your child is younger than two, and interested in potty training then go ahead and go with it. When kids are older than two, it can be more difficult to train the child because they are more set in their ways and they have been peeing in the diaper for longer, so it will take them a little bit longer to learn the new skill. And if the child is younger than two, they may just not be capable of understanding the process. But for the most part, in general, I do recommend starting potty training around the age of two.
