It’s a key milestone which parents and toddlers alike struggle with.
Even if your little one is hitting all other developmental steps, there’s no guarantee potty training will be a breeze.
Common wisdom tells us that kids should be potty trained between 18 months to three-years-old. However, it doesn’t always work out this way.
One couple are reaching the end of their potty-training tether with their three-year-old daughter – and they’re willing to throw money at the situation.
Having posted an advert on childcare.co.uk , the parents revealed they had previously tried to train the toddler themselves, but due to busy work schedules have failed and she still uses nappies.
But the pressure’s on – they want their daughter using the toilet by 23 December.
The advert reads We are a family of three that live in the beautiful county of Surrey with our dog Rex.
Both of us work full time in demanding jobs, and we have previously tried to toilet train her, but unfortunately due to our busy careers we’ve realised we simply do not have the time to do so.
We are very conscious that our daughter should be using a toilet by now, and with the in laws coming over for Christmas, I am desperate to get her fully using the toilet by the 23rd December.
We already have a housekeeper who takes care of our daughter day to day, but we would like someone to solely concentrate on getting her using the toilet!
We’d also like the professional to coach us on how to teach our daughter to use the toilet, so we can continue to teach her when they’re not around.
The couple are looking for a professional with at least ten years’ experience, adding their daughter can be somewhat difficult and doesn’t respond well to authority.
Potty training is one of the most stressful things you’ll get your child to do, and it’s common for children to wet the bed until they’re five years old.
This family are far from being alone with this struggle.
