The article offers information to handle sleeping, eating and toileting (S.E.T.) in a child. S.E.T. activities include readiness, in which readiness can be developmental and physical or emotional which includes the temperament of a child. Moreover, by concentrating on readiness instead of pushing the child for results, the child's confidence will develop and so will the child's cooperation. Furthermore, the emotional readiness of a child might be connected to family dynamics or can be a reflection of temperament.
