CALLING ALL MOMS! I am having a BIG problem!! Our son Harlan will be !4! in January... he is a smart, sweet little boy. My problem is potty training! We started potty training when we found out i was pregnant last year in April. He was doing great and we almost had him compleatly potty trained... then Adalee was born and we had a little regression, but it wasnt too bad! Then we took him out of day care at the beginning of the summer because we could not afford to put two kids in daycare. So now I work part time and am home with the kids 4 days a week! I !LOVE! being at home with my children, BUT I am at my wits end with this potty training thing! I have tried EVERYTHING I know to try. Reward charts, Stickers, Prizes, Treats , Bribes, Positive Reinforcement!! EVERYTHING! I have even taken away treats and privlages! NOTHING works. Our biggest problem is that he does not WANT to go to the bathroom... He dosnt care if he is wet or dirty. So my question is ... How do i get him to care?? How do I keep him WANTING to go to the bathroom. We have tried to put him on a schedule so he goes potty every 2 and a half hours but he will either go just a little bit and then pee his pants within 20 min... or he will not go at all and then he will pee his pants. Either way... he has at least 1 accident a day!! What do i do?
