I'm at the end of my rope. My 3 yr old attends daycare. On Aug 1st he will get moved up to his next class IF he's completely potty trained. Some other kids in his class are not potty trained yet either. This week they are refusing to allow him to wear pull ups. Underwear only. He continues to wet and poop in his underwear. He doesn't care that he's wet or dirty. He will sit in his own poo and not say a word to anyone. I constantly take him to the potty and he'll just sit there. Within 5 minutes or less after he gets up from the potty, he poops or pees in his underwear. I know I'm not suppose to show any frustration but it's too late. I can't take this anymore. The daycare workers are laying guilt trips on me every day when I drop him off, my husband blames me for not working with him enough, all the other "moms" I know have bombarded me with things to do to get him trained. I've tried the M&Ms, the baby doll that pees, books, videos, going to the bathroom in front of him and nothing workss. I feel so much pressure to get him potty trained now just so people will get off my back about it. This is suppose to be about him, not someone else's "schedule". I've been crying my eyes out this evening. I don't know what else to do. My poor son is the one suffering from most of this. I just don't feel like he understands. His speech isn't that good either. He's had numerous ear infections, tubes, and they say that puts a child behind in speech. However his vocabulary is growing everyday and I can pretty much understand what he tells me but again, daycare tells me he's behind all the other kids, and my husband puts all the blame on me not doing enough with him. I'm about ready to quit my full time job and just deal with my son. OK, enough with my pitty party. I need some good solid advice from people who have gone through this. HELP?????
