Um... am I already behind? I was watching Good Morning America this morning and saw a clip of mother's going to Potty training workshops. Actually, at first I thought... What a good idea, get your children used to the idea of the toilet and then I saw something that really disturbed me. A mother holding her 4 month old over the toilet. The mother holding his "item" (we all know what I'm taking about) over the toilet as her baby pees. What are your thoughts on this? Does a 4 month old really know what's going on? There was another mother holding what looked like a newborn as well! Then it shows mothers giving their children excessive amounts of liquid so their children pee more so they can be trained. YIKES.
To each their own. I just saw that and actually got upset. Can't we just leave our children grow on their own time? I thought children start getting potty trained when they can walk to the toilet on their own. Or at least by the time they are 2 1/2 or 3? What is that age marker now?
I guess I'm still learning. My baby is still 5 months old. We are concentrating on sleeping in his crib and eating new veggies. :)
Hope everyone has a good Wednesday!
