This session describes the process through which children gain continence. In addition this session also covers the recognition and management of common problems.

Learning objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:

  • Describe normal anatomy and physiology associated with urinary and bowel continence
  • Outline the process whereby normal children achieve continence
  • Advise parents on toilet training in healthy children
  • Discuss the range of variation and factors that impair or promote continence
  • Describe the effects of constipation on toilet training
  • Explain some of the causes of delayed urinary continence, initial assessment and management

Toilet training is an important developmental milestone in the life of any child allowing independence and social acceptance.

Toilet training can be a stressful and difficult time for parents and children. The time it takes for a child to become clean and dry during the day will vary a great deal. Informed advice from a professional can be invaluable to parents/carers.
