WHY IS IT SO HARD TO POTTY TRAIN MY SON?
Ruqayyah - posted on 01/07/2010
I just want to wish you ladies GOOD LUCK!!! I hear that it takes longer with boys, so maybe try to have patience and know that they will get it when the time is right for them. Maybe take a break if you've been doing it for awhile and you feel like you aren't getting anywhere with it. Again, I wish you good luck with it! Stay positive! : )

I have a 2 1/2 year old and he is still in pull-ups. I've been working with him since rite before his 2nd b-day. Good Luck!!!!! I've been told don't push it, it makes them rebel. ITS SO HARD...............but be patient.............I just learned the more patient you are the more coroperative they are. Hope you get somewhere soon.

with my son i waited until he was nearly 3 beacuse he simply wasn't ready to do it.but i did find i had quicker results he never used a potty he went staight on the toliet and beacuse he was older i was able to get him dry and keep him dry both day and night and we have had very few accidents. my daughter is 2 and starts pre school in september and i'm going to leave as long as i can before i start the process with her. i believe all children will do when they are good and ready to i know its hard but hang in there, we were once there age.

Im having the hardest time as well with my son. He turned 2 in November, and I felt because he picked up on so many thing so quickly, potty training would be a breeze..hahahaha...Not. But I read on the Pampers site, that the child may go into the bathroom and sit on the potty and not do anything and thats ok. I allow my son to sit on the potty, grab toilet paper like he did something and wash his hand. A lot of mothers Ive talked to also said that even though boys seem to be a little harder to train..they eventually got it around 2 1/2 or 3..I know its hard be patient. I can't wait for the day to buy him regular underpants.

it is so hard because you want it so bad. Not that your child wants it any less but it is less important to them. We all have an idea in our head of the child's age and time we want it to happen we put to much pressure on our kid's but when they are ready they are ready that is what I have found with my last 2 they did it in their own time. Don't push to much it stresses you and in turn stresses your child.
