I'm teaching English to my little kid and I often speak English with her during the day. But, sometimes I don't know whether the sentence that I want to tell her is natural and correct. For example, When she has a pee, I can't tell her anything because I don't know any word in this regard. Pls tech me the useful sentences that I can use in this situation.


If she needs to use the toilet, you could teach her to say: "I have to go potty." "I need to go pee-pee." If you want to ask her if she needs to use the toilet, you can ask things like: "Do you need to go pee-pee?" "Isn't it about time you go potty?" "Why don't you try to go potty?" Usually in America, we use potty and pee-pee the same way. In British English, though, they usually say wee-wee instead of pee-pee.

To add on Nate's answer, these are phrases used by children. As your child gets older, you may want to teach them a simple "I have to go to the bathroom" so that they don't accidentally embarrass themselves.

Haha, that's very true. Can you tell I have a two year old?
