Hello, I have a 2.5 year old toddler boy. I have tried introducing him to the potty but he seems resistant and takes it as if it is a game (a game consisting of him running away from me!) anyway some people have mentioned that if I enroll him in a daycare or Preschool where they offer potty training he will pick up the habit in no-time. My friend told me that her daughter refused to let her potty train her but as soon as she began attending a daycare, she became interested in the process and mastered potty training within 2 weeks. The explanation would be that kids learn by watching their peers and want to imitate them, apparently her daughter didn't want to be the only one in diapers and decided to embrace the potty.
My fear is that my son may react differently and run from the Daycare staff when they try to teach him, I fear that he will be resistant and that he may feel too pressured, and have a stressful /traumatic experience. My husband said that I should think positive and give it a try, so we are enrolling him at a Preschool/Daycare where they offer potty training. Any thoughts or experiences on this issue? Please share!
