Hi guys I have two beautiful toddlers, a boy who is 3 yrs 4 months and a 21 month old girl who is interested in learning some potty training, my issue is.. she is a very very private person and my 3 year old simply wont give her any peace he is shouting at the top of his lungs a running commentry of what his sister is doing, i can tell its making her feel uncomfortable , any tips?

At 21 months I doubt she has any concept of privacy. Maybe she just doesn't like him shouting at the top of his voice!

I agree with Merry.

I potty trained my DD at 20 months and have to say she liked privacy when using the potty, so if we went to someone's house, even very close family, she wouldn't go unless she was separate from everyone. Now that she uses the big toilet with one of those special seats, she's much happier as she can be left in peace when doing a no.2. She gets very annoyed if my one year old crawls in and bothers her! I'm not sure if it was a privacy thing or feeling pressured though by having others around.

(If you have a small downstairs loo you could pop the potty in there and pull the door to a bit - that's what I did, usually gave her a book or bag full of special potty time toys). She's almost two and now yells 'Done iiiiiiiit' when she's been!
