How will I know when my child is ready for potty training?

I would like to start potty training my 2 year old? When will I know when she is ready?

I tell my parents not to try potty training until the child starts to wake up in the morning with a dry diaper. Then you will know that the child's bladder has developed enough and the child will be able to control when she goes to the bathroom.
