Potty training does not have a season, but summer is a great time to give it a go. Warm weather encourages more fluid intake that in turn helps for extra potty practice.
Potty training in the December holidays helps, as you can be around to help. Summer means less clothes, so much easier than winter when you are wearing three layers. Even better when it is sunny, let them run around naked. – just remember the sunscreen on those little bums, they have never seen the sun. Another good thing about being out in the garden is accidents will water the lawn and not your carpet.
Make sure you give it enough time as most pre-schools will expect fully potty-trained children. Do not try potty train the week before school starts. This may just backfire on you and they could regress.
