On this week’s “You’ve Got This,” I talk with Traci Turner about the angst around toilet training.

Traci has worked with children and families for more than 20 years as a preschool teacher, preschool director and in family social service programs working with at risk teens and young mothers. Her degree is in child care and development. She has been the director of a private preschool for the past 10 years. She is passionate about encouraging parents to lead their families with love. Traci strives to share her Christian values with the families she counsels. Traci has been married to her husband Matt since 1999, and they have one teenage daughter, Reese. They live in rural southeast Texas. Traci is very active in her church where she teaches Bible classes for children.

“Parents are starting way to late, so they’re missing their window of opportunity to potty train. That window is truly 18 months to 2 years. We’re not even starting until age 3 and that’s the main problem that I see today with toilet training.”

Listen to the podcast for more insights and suggestions about how to relax when training our kids.
