My 2 1/2 yr old nathan has always been especially stubborn.. from baby food.. to crawling.. to walking.. to talking.. everything has taken time.. and n0t because he cant do it.. because he can and wont. and now potty training is the worse! nothin seems to work.. real underpants, pullsups.. puttin him on his on he own potty in his favorite room.. puttin him on the big potty every half hr or so.. no matter wat i do he holds it until he has a diaper/pull-up on.. n he wont tell me when he goes in those either.. he has no interest in tryin at all.. n i know hes fully capable of learning in just a few days if he would cooperate.. i even offered rewards for the potty.. but once he hears the reward he flips out n wants it that second n wont focus on sitting on the potty at all.. i dont know wat to do. I still keep him in a crib as well.. i know he should be in a bed by now n i have one for him i just dont want him to have the freedom to get up whenever yet. Im open to any suggestions. I was thinking maybe if i give him the bed it may help? i dont know. please give me any advice u can think of. i want my son potty trained by the time he's 3.
