Depends on the child. Summer is easier then winter ( less clothes). I have 3 . One was trained at 2 (g) the other 3 (b) and I have a 21month old (b) . What I do w/ him is just let him sit on the potty before a bath, he`s already naked so it`s easy.He`s been using it for 3months now & not afraid of flushing. Try it and never make a big issue

from my experience so far Id have to say boys are easier than girls my son was done at 18 months and my daughter now going on 2 is only day trained..

As a mother of four I believe it has to do with the personalty of the kid. My oldest, a boy, didn't potty train until he was almost 4, my second, also a boy, was potty trained at 2 and 1/2, my third, a girl was trained just before two, and our fourth, another boy, is only five months.

I believe it depends on the kid. My daughter is going to be 4 in January and I just got her out of diapers over the summer. She really didn't want any part of potty training for the longest time and believe me I tried numerous times. I believe that you will know when they are ready and until then take your time. It may not work for everyone but it worked for me.

My son was easy. Done at 2. My daughter just turned 3 and still can quite get it. She is so stubborn thought. I have heard that girls are easier but I am not seeing it.
