My son is 3.2 years old. He knows how to go to pee in the big potty standing up and how to go poo poo in his little potty. Sometimes he decides to go on his own and is proud of himself. However, most of the time he chooses to go in his pull-ups. Every time we try to take him to the potty to go, even when we know he needs to, he throws a tantrum and screams until we give up and let him go in his pull-ups. Any suggestions? We've tried reward charts and they work while we do the chart but once we abandon the chart and think he's ready to go on his own, he stops and goes back to tantrums. Any advice on potty training a very strong-willed child?
