There are many theories on how to potty train a child. However, there are some developmental stages that the child must have met for him to be successful. The child must be able to:
• Walk by himself to the toilet or potty chair
• Be able to sit by himself
• Dress himself or be able to pull down his pants and pull them back up again
• Stay dry for up to two hours.
• Tell you when they need to go
• Follow basic directions
• Be interested in going in the toilet or in wearing underwear.
