Toilet training means teaching your children how to go to the toilet when they have the urge to go number 1 or 2. When it comes to potty training, it can either be a nightmare for other parents, while some may find it not that difficult of a task to achieve.

A lot of parents may not realize it, but most of them actually force their children thus making potty training more difficult than it is. It is one of the most important milestones in a child’s early life, just because other kids their age are already potty trained does not mean that you should force your child too.
