My son Dakota is 3 1/2 years old. He will be 4 in August. When we was 2, he took somewhat of an interest in potty training then out of no where didn't care anymore. We tried everything to get him interested in it again but couldn't. We waited till he was 21/2 to try again, we stopped buying diapers and have continued to buy pull ups...We bought actual underwear to show him that he can wear them once he starts using the potty like he is supposed to. I make him sit down every 30 mins for 5 mins at a time. He will pee and I praise him...we've been doing this since he was 2 1/2 and he is still not doing it on his own. He refuses to poop in his potty chair and won't even try on the big toilet. He will sit in his poop until I have checked if he is wet or stinky. He just does not care. I will even ask him if he pooped or peed and he says no even though he knows he did. I don't know what else to do...I am at a loss...he just will not potty train...and please don't say "wait until he is ready.."...My son is going on 4 years old...no child should still be in pull ups at 4...the waiting game is over...
