A potty trained child is a child who is independently able to:

1. Tell an adult they have to go potty before they have to go.

2. Pull down their underwear and pants and get them back up without assistance.

3. Wipe themselves after using the toilet.

4. Get on and off the toilet by themselves.

5. Wash and dry their own hands.

6. Postpone going if they must wait for someone who is in the bathroom or if we are outside and away from the bathroom.
