Remember that the beginnings of toilet training are a source of pride for the child, a sign that he is progressing and growing up and an opportunity for him to express his needs and autonomy.
Respect the rhythm of your child
The connections that enable his central nervous system must be established. The age of cleanliness varies from one child to another: between 2 and 4 years, most children become clean during the day and at night.
Here are some landmarks:
Between 15 and 24 months: "pee breaks" are spaced and regularized
Around 24 months: the child can tell his parents that his pants are wet.
Around 36 months: the child becomes clean during the day and during the nap.
Around 4 years old: the child is clean during the day and he starts to wear no more nappies at night.
Observe the signs that show your child is ready
- He knows how to walk for a while, knows how to sit and get up alone from a small chair
- He knows how to go up and down a standing staircase
- He knows how to lower and put on his pants or his pants alone
- He can tell (or show if he does not speak yet) when his diaper is dirty
- He is embarrassed when his diaper is dirty
- Her diaper is dry after nap or two hours straight in the day
- It shows interest in the toilet, it follows you when you go there and wants to stay with you
The parent must also be available to think of the many passages to the toilet, shaped to provide different washing clothes … Avoid the periods when you are tired. Starting during the holidays can also be a good idea for you. Do you agree within the couple, also warn the nursery, the maternal assistant, the grandparents … You must all have the same speech!
The child would not understand why at times he has to wear diapers and others to take them off. It can even prevent him from better controlling his sphincters.
Tips to accompany him to cleanliness
- Buy a pot or booster
- Place the pot in the toilet (not in the middle of the living room) and leave free access
- Explain to him what he's used for, you can read him a few little books
- Dress it up with easy-to-remove clothes
- Plan "pee appointments" or "precautionary pee": encourage him to go on the pot regularly (make a reminder, and think about it also after each meal)
- If he has managed to do in the pot, congratulate him without exaggeration, do not do too much praise, but also value his efforts (he sits quietly on the pot) or his success.
- Uncoated beginnings are always chaotic, but no matter what leaks, it is important not to put the child in a stress or failure situation. The parent must remain patient and caring: "It's normal not to know how to do right now", "You did not realize because you were playing well"… Dedramatize accidents and always plan a roll of paper towels to wipe any small puddles.
How to help him understand what is going on in him?
Use simple sentences to explain: "When you're waddling, you want to go to the bathroom", "You'll pee when you decide", "When you want to pee, stop playing and go to the bathroom", "You went on the pot alone, you become autonomous", "You tried to pee, it did not work, it does not matter, you can try again a little later", "Your panties are wet, we will choose a clean one to change it"…
Your child refuses the pot! What to do ?
If he refuses to sit on the pot or the toilet, no need to scold him. He does not see the interest of the pot yet and he may not be ready. Conflicts can make the situation worse.
Try the game: imagine the fire truck speeding up to the toilet, or the pirate who screams the collision by reaching the pot! For him to enjoy this pee break ask him to sing with you his favorite song or listen to beautiful stories
Other solutions to test? Imagine a small quiet and welcoming place, install an easily washable non-slip mat, plan a few small books just for the little corner or a small music station …
If he categorically refuses to sit on the pot, do not insist. Put it away and take it out a few weeks later. Propose him to do other activities "like the big ones" and encourage him to do alone toboggan, tricycle, to eat alone …

Here is what you want to know before visiting your local medical dispensary:You may require a physician’s recommendation, medical cannabis certificate, or whatever appropriate documentation is needed by your state. Typically, you need to be 18 or older to qualify for a medical consent, but exceptions may be made in some states for minors with especially debilitating conditions. You will often register with a medicinal dispensary. This is to keep your medical cannabis recommendation or certificate on file for legal and regulatory purposes. There’ll be a waiting space. This is to control the circulation of product and patients, but a straightforward dividing wall gives patients privacy and direct one-on-one contact using a budtender to discuss medical problems. This procedure can help budtenders and patients track effective medicine in addition to have a living listing of manufacturers and goods for future reference and follow up. Medicinal dispensaries usually permit you to smell and analyze the buds before buy. This may differ from state-to-state.
DOES AN APPLICANT NEED MUNICIPAL APPROVAL BEFORE RECEIVING A RETAIL CANNABIS LICENSE? Yes, municipal approval is necessary before the AGLC will subject a retail cannabis license. Applicants should get in touch with their intended municipality to learn requirements regarding municipal retail cannabis legislation, zoning requirements, land-use restrictions, and location requirements regarding how close a retail shop can be into a provincial medical care centre, college, or parcel of land designated as a college reserve.
