Okay, let's talk about three signs that your child is ready for potty training. First of all your child needs to show interest. If he is really interested when you go potty or when the siblings go potty, then that's a good sign that he's ready to see go potty. You also want to watch for signs that your child is keeping his diaper dry for longer periods of time. So if you go to change your child's diaper and it's dry, sometimes that's a good sign that he's holding his urine. It's also important your child can physically pull his pants up and down on his own if he chooses to. Most children can pull their pants up and down on their own but may not because you already do it for them.

If you don't know then talk to his teachers or talk to friends or babysitter or even grandma because they may have noticed that one time he did pull his pants on his own. So those are the three tips that you know that your child is ready to be potty trained. If he shows interest in potty training, if he is keeping his diaper dry for longer periods of time and if he can physically pull his pants up and down on his own, then you know your child is ready to be potty trained.
