It depends on your child, but fully potty training a kid -- to wearing underwear, rare accidents -- can take longer than you might think, even up to a year in some cases. Most of the time, toilet-training isn't fast and it isn't smooth. That's because several areas of development need to line up first. Your child has to communicate well, be aware of his bodily feelings, and understand how much time he needs to get there. It can take even longer for kids to learn to stay dry through the night, and some bed-wetting is common until age 5 or so. --Donna Christiano
