My son is 3 and i have tried everything i know to get him to go on the potty. I put him on it every hour and he is just NOT wanting to have anything to do with it. Am i pushing him too much?

First of all I've heard from many people that boys are harder to potty train than girls. My son is 3 1/2. I had him doing good with peeing on the potty since he was 2. I'd put pull ups on him still though. Finally on his 3rd birthday I had enough especially with the fact that I was having another baby in 2mths and was NOT changing both of their diapers. It might sound a little cruel but this worked. I put underwear on him 24/7 and when he would ask for a pull up I'd tell him no. This went on for 3 days. Finally on that last day he couldn't take it anymore and came running down the hall yelling 'Mommy it's time to go on the potty!" He's gone on the potty ever since. We still have some night time pee accidents but that's expected for a little while yet. Good luck!
