I can get him to go on the potty when he has to poop, but how do I get him to understand when he needs to pee, and to tell me? Do I just start putting him on the potty at different times throughout the day? I know not to force him to it, and sometimes he won't get on the potty at all, any suggestions, or helpful advice? I have an 11 year old daughter, so it's been a while since I potty trained a child, I forget a lot of the things I did with my daughter, although, I do remember her being more eager to go on the potty. He'll say the word potty, but when I bring him to sit on it, he won't get on, or if I get him on, he won't stay unless he has to poop, in which case, he wants me to sit with him and hug him while he goes, which I do, because I don't want him to be scared, or uncomfortable, I wonder though, if doing this will cause more harm than good, in the long run?
