What age do I need to start potting training my daughter? She is one year and three months

Let her tell you!: My take on potty training children is very simple: i believe the child will tell you when she's ready! watching you or other family members using the toilet acts as an incentive for the child. That, combined with gentle encouragement, will do the trick... And it will be a point of great pride for the child. Good luck! ...Read more

I've begun potty training my 3 year old daughter, but she fearful & is holding it for a long time (one day for 18 hours). What can I do to help her?

Several things: First, the ability to be toilet trained depends on neurological maturation. Second, toilet training is a skill that is easily shaped through positive reinforcement. Failures should be ignored and successes praised. Putting too much emphasis on the toilet training and failures can increase the child's resistance. Most children learn this skill easily if done in a relaxed manner. ...Read more

Will my jeans size increased but I wont give in and buy new ones. Will it decrease if I start doing weight training?

Maybe: If your waist size increased then weight training by itself is not going to get you back into your jeans. You need to get onto a low carb diet. Cut out all the carbs you know: breads, tropical fruit. Also cut down on your fats as well. Eat 5 meals a day. You need to do cardio to help burn up the fat around your waist as well. ...Read more

Which one cardio or weight training better for weight loss?

Which one cardio or weight training better for weight loss?

Cardiovascular: For burning calories, increasing your basal metabolic rate, and increasing endurance, cardiovascular activity is the answer for weight loss. Resistance training can of course be combined with cardio, but does not burn as many calories, tends to increase lean muscle, and tone your appearance.
