Okay, I realize this is not a Pagan parenting issue per se, but I will take all the advice I can get.
My daughter, who is 18 months old *today* seems ready to start wanting to try the potty. We've been reading her books about it for months, and I try to "set a good example."
Suddenly, this week she is interested in yanking off her diaper and peeing "outside" like the beagle I'm currently housetraining. (okay, she didn't quite make it, but the laundry room *is* right next to the back door). Her favorite word is "outside" and she seems to have figured out the connection between peeing and being "outside."
The diaper also disappeared some time in the middle of the night last night...
Now I can basically housebreak a dog in a week or less, especially one as food-motivated as a beagle.
But this is a person. Where do I start? I actually had a mother at work suggest I start with a kiddie potty outside (our yard is walled and our neighbors aren't particulary nosy).
