My husband and I have a 3 yr old foster child (boy) We have had him for a long enough time he is really secure here (calls us mommy and daddy.)
We tried about a month ago to start potty training, and he wasn't ready. He showed a lot of signs ofeing read but we couldn't get him to sit on the big potty (with the smaller kid ring.)
We started again last week, and he's much more willing to go sit on the potty, however we've only been able to 'catch' him 1x going pee pee.
We take him every hour, he's in big boy undies, doesn't like being wet or dirty, and is earning a reward for going. We've had "dolls" pee, his "cookie monster" pee, had him run around naked and we can't catch him. He always pees during a nap or at bed.
We were putting a pull up on over his undies and stopped, as he didn't like the feel of it. We now just have undies and he can' "keep them dry"but the issue is he'sTOO dry. He's not having the "success" of peeing and knowing "oh, this is the feeling, I go in the potty." We can't force him to drink and are giving him foods and drinks which SHOULD make him go
Any other tips?
