My son is not able to communicate verbally yet as he just had tubes put in and is still trying to play catch up in his vocabulary so my husband and I have never really pushed him into doing anything that would require a lot of communication like potty training, or going to special restaurants (and behaving). But I'm now 24 weeks pregnant and due in June. I would like to start potty training my son now so if it does become a long process we still have some time.
My son absolutely will not have it. He won't sit down on the seat when we tried and he can't stand up because of course, he doesn't know to aim. We have two older sons (7 and 5 years old) and he used to be really interested in watching them and trying but now he's not.
How can we start working on this now even though he cannot communicate with us as well as most children do when they potty train? Any suggestions?
