Great Read Alouds: Let's get personal
There are some words almost guaranteed to generate laughter from toddlers and children, or honestly, even adults. Often referred to as potty talk it can make adults cringe. Although embarrassing, trying these words is a good measure of age appropriate development. Toddlers use the language to connect the body parts and bodily functions they are learning to control through potty training. Older children might use them when they are anxious or angry, as a form of humor and as a way to push boundaries. By getting reactions from "poopy face" they are learning acceptable behavior and social cues. It's all part of growing!
