Toilet Training is a phase that all children will go through eventually, some just take longer than others. Chantelle Newbury’s son is one of the kids who is struggling to become fully toilet trained at the age of 5. She has sought all sorts of help but he just doesn’t get it. Sheryl Sidery suggests that mothers are guilty of being competitive on the topic of toilet training and do not always share their real experiences for fear of being judged as a bad mother for something that is really outside of their control in most cases. By doing this, we miss out on the support and camaraderie that we really should expect when facing a tricky situation.

So what is the average age for toddlers to be toilet trained and do girls train faster than boys? Well yes they do, but only just. The average age for girls to be toilet trained is 29 months and for boys 31 months. Remember though, this is just an average age so that means there are plenty of kids who train earlier and later than this.
