The Doogie Howser of potty trainingAugust 16, 2008
The last parenting book I’ve read — OK, the only one — says not to bother with potty training until a child is at least two years old. But Phil, now just shy of 22 months, has already logged solid progress in this area. He’s seen what older kids do and, with minimal encouragement, is imitating them rather successfully.
Our day-care provider says that, in her 20 years of working with small children, she’s never seen anyone actually use the potty at such a young age.
Does that make him a smartass?
