The History of Potty Training

Learning to control the bladder and bowels is a significant rite of passage that we all embark on during the toddler years. While this pilgrimage is universal, the way it is done varies significantly across cultures and throughout time. Potty training rites, today, look completely different than they did in earlier centuries. In fact, kids today take nearly twice as long to potty train as kids fifty years ago, which is likely because modern parents tend to let their child take the lead.
