TOILET TRAINING

the procedure involved in teaching a kid to manage the emptying of the bowel and bladder by acquired inhibition of natural reflexes and to void in the right place and way. Even though defecation and urination consist of operatives of the ANS, it trains the person to override the reflex action with voluntary nerve management.

TOILET TRAINING: "Toilet training is a significant hurdle to overcome in child-rearing."
