Just the mention of toilet training brings anxiety and exhaustion to the minds of many parents.
Toddlers are stubborn. They are still developing emotion regulation skills. They are still developing coordination and body awareness.
Toilet training can be a nightmare for some children.
In other instances, children may have learning or developmental needs that lead to further delays in toilet training.
Whether your child is 3 or 7 years old, toilet training can be hard and stressful.
You may feel tied to your kitchen or backyard because going anywhere means a messy accident and lots of judging eyes.
