Interview adult. Toileting is dependent on family expectations and background, and cultural differences. Type of diaper used also impacts feeling of wetness, so children who wear pull-ups may not feel wet.
Ask adult about the child’s urinary and bowel habits.
98% of children are toilet trained by this age.
Early childhood educators and parents can encourage children to assume responsibility for bathroom care with little supervision.
