What You Need to Know to Potty Train - A Q & A

by Janny Perez June 27, 2018

My daughter is now 3.  Is she fully potty trained?  Well,  yes kind of sort of, um I guess the right answer is no.    When I hear parents say that they potty trained their child in 2 days, I am baffled.  When should you start potty training?

I have one 3 year old daughter named Victoria (in my belly below). I would love to have another child, right about now but for health reasons, we have decided to only have one child.  Many of my friends are now having a second baby and I wanted to address some of their concerns.

Like them, many parents have a second child when their firstborn is 2-4 years old so there isn’t a huge difference in age when the children grow up.  I asked my sister, an 18 year experienced preschool teacher, to share her advice and her experiences with you in order to help you when you're ready to have bebé #2.  Check out this month’s Dasy’s Corner.

My daughter turned 3 in March. Up until now she has been going to a family daycare, but I decided it was time to move on to preschool.  Boy, has this preschool search been an eye opening, “I’m not prepared at all” experience.  I wanted to share this with you in hopes that when you are ready to start looking you ARE prepared and not scrambling like I’ve been over the past few weeks.  I've even included a Free Downloadable Questionnaire for you to have with you when you are ready to start searching.  See what I was surprised to learn!
