Using a potty is a new skill for your child to learn. It's best to take it slowly and go at your child's pace. Being patient with them will help them get it right, even if you sometimes feel frustrated:
- NHS - How to potty train
- NHS - Potty training problems
- Eric The Children’s Bowel and Bladder Charity offers information and advice on potty training. Information for kids and teens can be found on the dropdown tabs. More information and advice on bowel and bladder problems can be found under the help and support tab.
Between the ages of three and five, it's also important to teach your child to wash their hands and wash themselves independently so that they gain:
- Good hygiene habits
- A sense of responsibility
