Today, my two year old has learned new things from his best friend. His best friend is our dog. He's learned to eat dog food, lick people, and now he's started taking off his diaper to lift his leg and pee. FML

How does this have upvotes? All kids mimic animals. It has nothing to do with parenting. My kid barked at the doorbell at that age. I run a daycare and deal with a lot of kids. I currently have a two year old in my care, and just yesterday he was laying on the ground next to my dog, mimicking my dog. The dog would roll over, the kid would roll over. It's what kids do. The peeing thing is weird, that I'll admit, but the rest is normal two year old activity and shouldn't be used to judge parenting.

My toddler learned to use potty from a cat, he watched the cat dig a hole in the garden, etc. Boy did the same. Then we told him that the plastic potty is a good and comfortable equivalent to the hole in the flower bed.

@ 8. You can't "wait until they're ready." You as the parent have to direct your child and make sure they learn the things they need to know. Average age for potty training in 1950's was 11 months. Now it's 30 months (2.5). They're ready, it's just more difficult for the parent. We as parents need to stop blaming it on our kids "not being ready" and realize that it's our will to succeed.

#11, I am a mother of three kids and grandma of two. I'm am quite aware of how to potty train a child. I have been successful in this endeavor with all my kids, including the special needs one.
