WE ARE DOING OK FOR THE MOST PART .. THE ONLY THING IS I HAVE TO KEEP PUTTING HIM ON HIS POTTY AND HOPE HE PEES IN IT .. I LET HIM WALK AROUND NAKED TO BE ABLE TO SEE THE SIGNS OF HIM HAVING TO GO BETTER... SOMETIMES HE STARTS TO GO ON THE FLOOR AND I PUT HIM ON THE POTTY AND HE FINISHES ON THE POTTY.. BUT THE THING IS I DONT THINK HE KNOWS THATS WHERE HE IS SUPPOSED TO USE THE BATHROOM.. MY SON DOESNT TALK TO WELL YET SO HE DOESNT TELL ME WHEN HE HAS TO GO.. CAN SOMEBODY PLZ GIVE ME SOME GOOD ADVICE AND WAYS TO GET HIM TO UNDERSTAND THATS WHERE HE USES THE BATHROOM.... OH YEA IS IT HARDER TO GET A CHILD TO TAKE A BOWEL MOVEMENT ON THE POTTY THEN IT IS TO PEE

I don't think it's necessarily that he doesn't know that's where he's supposed to go to use the bathroom but rather that when he feels like he has to go it's already to late and doesn't make it to the potty. He is still young and learning new things is always an adventure with little ones, just keep doing whatever you are doing and he'll eventually be potty trained. Just don't force him to do it if he's not ready. And as for the bm versus the peeing....yes it is always easier to get them to pee in the potty first then it is for them to poop in the potty! However, that's what I've seen with friends/relatives children!
