Ryan spends about 1 day a week with me and I, as his grandma, want to help get him potty trained. He is backing away from me because I have been scolding him with my tone of voice because I put him on the toilet when I see a sign and Ryan refuses this and will wet or poop soon after taken off. I know by his attitude to me now that he is angry with me and that makes me sad because I want the best for him. Ryan has a limited vocabulary and generally does not talk. I believe he has a hearing problem also - has tubes in both ears. He is a very good looking blond blue eyed boy and is very sweet. He has legg-calve Perthes disease on the right side and other problems but he is strong. I can see that he is very frustrated. Please help me do the best for him in a kind way so he can see I am just trying to help nim.
