i was wondering, whats your best way of potty training a boy?
My son is a little over 2 years old, very hyper active, don't like wearing boxers/undies at all or diapers in general but he will. Pull up are like diapers so that don't mind but that don't work. He thinks they are diapers.. He knows when he has to use the bathroom don't esecailly when he needs to poo. He likes his diapers. He acts like he wants to be potty broken, he went on a toilet a couple times, he wanted, thats because of my daughter. But i can't get him to wear anything. Ugh. I'm not forcing him. I know never force a child to be potty broken. Let them do it on his own. I just want more helpul advice . He'll go pee on the toilet when he wants, but he wont go poo on it. He'll wear undies all day outside when the sunshine is out and everything and wont go til I have diapers on his butt. ugh.
How did you do it, for a boy? Any helpful hints?
Everyone told me to have his father, cause its easier for a boy to potty train a boy, but he's always at work .
NOTE: He's so hyper that he wont sit on the toilet very long enough either. He can't sit still, LOL. not even with a favorite toy. The only way he sits there long enough is if he keeps playing with the flusher button to flush the toilet. He's so amused with that. haha.
My daughter was so much easier potty training. I stuck undies on her and thats what helped her. I skipped the pull ups on her because they gave her a rash so. and her going to headstart really helped out alot too
