Q: How did you potty train your kids?
A: This is definitely one of those areas with huge variation based upon the individual child!  I have two boys, one with special needs, and in both cases our children trained on the late side (and beyond) of the potty training age profiles.  When your child is both physically and mentally ready, the transition can be relatively quick and painless for all involved.  Pushing too early can make potty training for parents and children alike, so take your time!
