Jamie helped me potty train a very stubborn, almost 4-year old. Only 2 days and he was trained and done…no accidents! Jamie used such patience and understanding when helping to train our son. Her methods made him comfortable and he had fun-he actually enjoyed the whole process!– Molly*

Our daughter is almost 5. She would not even sit on the potty without a ridiculous fight. Her anxiety was unexplainable. We tried numerous times to get her to go on the potty, and we had no luck. Jamie was able to connect with our daughter and within half of a day, she was going pee in the potty proudly and then the 3rd day, poop in the potty. Poop in the potty was not even talked about because it scared our little girl so much. My husband and I cannot even believe what Jamie was able to do.– Christa*
Potty Training Readiness Criteria
While we can work with most children successfully in a short time, there are certain readiness factors that we do look for, including:
- Your child is at least 2 years old; if your child is younger than 2 years old, and meets the readiness criteria below, he or she may still be ready for potty training
- Your child’s doctor has not identified any medical conditions that would preclude bladder or bowel control (please inform consultant if your child experiences irregularity of bowel or constipation)
- Your child is able to pull his/her pants/shorts/underwear down independently; most children learn this as part of the potty training process
- Your child willingly accepts physical guidance/assistance
- Your child is able to tolerate and understand delayed rewards
- Your child isn’t experiencing other significant changes such as the birth of a sibling or starting a new daycare
If your child hasn’t shown interest in the potty, we can help! This isn’t a prerequisite.
If you felt discouraged when you read one or two of the above criteria, we can still help!
Sometimes a child needs guidance in building skills like the ability to tolerate delayed rewards or a willingness to accept physical assistance.
If you are running into these or other behaviors that might impact potty training, we’d love to help build those skills by providing virtual family support services.
Still not sure if your child is ready? We offer an introductory, assessment phone consultation to help you determine next steps.
