How to Talk about Toileting: Terminology

We approach toilet learning as one of the “works” in the Montessori Toddler Community, and we invite the child to the work. We understand that children’s attention spans vary, and they may not follow through with all the steps involved in the work of toilet learning, just as they may not follow all steps of other works in the classroom. They may sit on the toilet for 30 seconds rather than 1 minute. They may just go in the bathroom, pull down their pants, then pull them back on. That is to be expected as they learn! As a child becomes comfortable with knowledge about toileting and the sequence of toileting, their concentration will develop.
