Why Kids Resist Potty Training?
By: Narmin Parpia
Children are often unable to explain the problems they have with our parenting techniques, and you child's only option may be to resist your effort to potty train or toilet train him/her. When trying to discern the reasons behind the resistance, it may help to quickly review the following common causes:
Confusion about the potty training or toilet training process or about what is expected of him/her
Curiosity about what will happen if s/he resists
Anxiety or fear about the process of elimination, or fear of the potty or the toilet
Independence and control issues that make it hard for him/her to satisfy your wishes at this time
Too much pressure to perform
Inappropriate potty training or toilet training technique that does not suit the child personality or learning style
Physical pain cause by an infection or constipation
