i tried letting my son wear just his training pants without a diaper to see if that would prompt him, to use the potty, or at least let me know if he had to go. i was wrong. i had planned on taking him to the potty every half hour even if he didn't seemed like he needed to go. i was loading my clothes dryer, and he came let me know he had made a mess on the floor. i followed him to discover he had pee'd on the floor. so i took him to the bathroom sat him on the toilet, and tried to explain to him to use the toilet. i was not upset while explaining this to him. i know there will be accidents. i cleaned him up, put a fresh pair of undies on and a new pair of pants, then went back to loading my dryer. i was gone for a total of @ 5 minutes. once i returned he had done pooped in his pants and undies this time. so, what do i do, or how do i make him understand??? i have been trying different approaches for almost 3 weeks now. when i ask him if he needs to potty, just at the mention of the word potty, he has a meltdown. i think i am more frustrated than he is. can anyone help me, PLEASE!!!
