I have two children that I believe are ready for potty training one is almost 4 the other almost 3. the oldest is a boy the younger a girl. They both show most of the signs for being ready, however neither one talks really and while they can learn and repeat sign language they seem to have no ability to initiate communication, i.e. they will not ask for food, a drink, a toy or the potty. Any ideas on how to get them to communicate this need to me? otherwise I feel like I spend half the day taking them to the potty every 30-40 minutes to stay for like 10 mins and still almost always miss getting them in there at the right time.
