However, if this carries over into a reluctance to try anything new, that may be a sign your child is not yet emotionally ready to attempt something like potty training, in which there can be a great deal of failure before there is success. If you think your child does have a fear of failing, the best thing you can do is make sure she sees, feels, and hears your unconditional, positive regard. Find something about each so-called “failure” and praise her for continuing to try. You should be particularly careful that you don’t show strong emotional reactions to everyday failures when your child is in hearing range.

For example, after she’s been peeing in the potty productively for a while, an excited response will lose its potency. That’s not to say you stop the praise, but you must tailor it to fit her skill level. Y 42 Universal Strategies Check Your Child’s Schedule Many babies’ natural body rhythms start to revolve involuntarily around a regular schedule. Savvy parents can capitalize on this when they are ready to start training, but you have to observe the patterns well before training begins. Keeping a chart can be helpful, but for most parents, it’s simply a matter of paying a little closer attention to the time they change diapers each day.

There are just slight variations in gender, and for each skill a range of ages is given. Please keep in mind these ages are averages, and do not say anything about what is “normal” development. Your child may very well learn according to these age ranges, but you shouldn’t worry if they achieve these skills a little earlier or later than the children in this study.
