Hi all! I am the mother of a 2 1/2 year old boy...we started potty training at 2 and it seems like we have gotten no where! I'm not sure what to do. I have tried getting him his own potty, I got a seat that sits on the "big" potty, I have tried stickers,I have taken him potty with and with daddy, letting him pick his own underwear and offering toys and movies if he goes...all with no results. I think he understand the idea of the potty because he will go sit but he never goes. I have caught him a couple times but only because I saw his "pooping face" as we call it and got him to potty just in time. I have noticed recently that he pulls on himself and when I ask if he has to go he says no. I take him anyways...but nothing happens. I got him up this morning, we went to sit on the potty and I noticed he was completely dry!! So I know he had to go, he sat for about 10 minutes and did nothing so I took him off, not 5 minutes later I heard him say pee pee potty so I went to sit him back down but he had already gone!! So I think he gets what he is supposed to do but he just won't do it. He wont even tell me when he has to go. I have seen a lot of moms who let their child be naked all day but that is something I am not okay with. So I am hoping for some advice that doesn't involve that. Any help would be appreciated!!!
