At what age do parents in your country or area of residence usually potty-train their kids? Is it different from your home country/other point of reference? If there is a difference, what do you think accounts for it and what are you going to do?
I'm asking because it seems on TB as though most people in the US start PTing around 18ish months, give or take a few. But here in my area of Germany, my friends haven't started until 2.5-3 years. My guess is that in part it's because many children here don't start preschool until they're 3, but that's just a guess, and even one good friend whose kids went to preschool earlier didn't PT until they were 2.5. I haven't decided yet what to do, although my indecision is by default a decision to do it the German way, I suppose. :-) DD isn't showing any interest yet, so I don't feel I need to push her.
