I have a little over 2 year old son and we've been trying to potty train as well and its a tough cookie. when he has pull ups, he'll just go in them because its like a diaper , and he will NOT wear little boy undies, so we tried little boy boxers, but nope , he wont for the life of it wear them, either, he'll wear certain shorts sometimes alone but not that either. he tells me when he poo's, but wont go on the potty. once in a blue moon, he'll go pee on the potty , but thats cause he's see's his 3 1/2 sister says she has to go potty and goes in the bathroom and he'll do it on his own but he'll eve barely do that. so im having troubles myself and not sure what else to do either. he acts like he wants to be potty broke but wont? ugh. and he's so hyper active, he wont stay long on the toilet most of the time, not even with his favorite toys to help him get the concept. we'll keep asking him like every 10 mins if he has to go but he'll say no and run for his life. being so hyper, he wont stand there to even let us explain or talk to him or anything, so frustrating at times.
any other idea's to help? or what should i do? or anything?
alot of people have told me boys were earlier than girls to potty train yet some say different wise. in my eyes, girls were easier. my daughter was sooo much easier to potty train lol.
