When is the Right Time to Potty Train?

Toddler 411: Clear Answers & Smart Advice for Your Toddler, 2nd Edition

According to my Toddler Cliff's Notes, Toddler 411, most kids aren't ready for potty training until around 3.  Apparently training too early prolongs the process and could involve a lot of accidents, which could affect a child's self-esteem.  Hmmmm.  I just read in Parents magazine that the ideal time to toilet train is between 27 and 32 months.  If you wait too long, it could lead to more resistance.  I guess I'll hold off on potty training for now.  But I'm still throwing the poo in the toilet - just makes the house smell better!
