Quick Answers...

 

My grandmother tells me all her children were potty trained by the time they were 1 year old. Am I doing something wrong?
 

Most children are toilet trained between the ages of 2 and 3, although individual children mature at different rates. Girls generally learn toileting a few months earlier than boys.
A few children may learn earlier Usually when children are toilet trained early it is the parents who are managing the toilet training and keeping them on a schedule.
