My son has not had potty training accident at daycare in over a month - he was also the only child at daycare potty training. This week, another child has started potty training and my son has had 2 accidents in one week!

He was getting all the praise before and now he is sharing the praise. Could that cause the accidents?

Kids often have accidents for many reasons, I honestly don't think its jealousy that the other kid is getting praise.

He may be jealous, but I would guess that he is just getting used to another child joining him. Children react to change, even if it is only slight change. 2 accidents in a week does not sound too bad, just be patient with him and I bet it will sort out.
