What do I do, he does not want anything to do with it. I also think my profile only shows my oldest son who is by the way potty trained, I would hope so, he is 22. But my two year old does not seem to want to do it.

My daughter hasn't started potty training either. Actually, I had started but she doesn't seem to be making the connection of what she is supposed to be doing sitting on the potty. She'll sit there all day & then pee in her panties the minute she gets up.

I got a doll called Potty Patty. They have one for boys named Potty Scotty. www.pottyscotty.com. It has a whole plan to follow & is pretty cool. Both dolls are anatomically correct & Potty Scotty can even stand up to "pee" Also, these dolls pee on command. I also have a 13 month old & have been lazy to get the Potty Patty system enacted but I'll get around to it lol. Good luck!

i started my daughter potty training at 2.5 years old and i bought some gold stars and made her a potty start chart she got having a wee virtually straight away but having a poo took alot longer, she got a gold star every time she did a wee and i let her put it on her chart and bought her something everytime she got to so many stars as a reward, and when she started doing poo in her potty i gave her 2 stars which she got really excited about and once she had done that she was wanting to try the big girls toilet and now she can do it all by herself with help of a step and a kids toilet seat and she feels so independant x

My son finally decided (with some help from me) that potty training is the way to go. Thank you, Jesus! His Dad was beginning to think he'd be going to college in diapers. It's been two weeks now and though he occasionally asks for a diaper - I think we're over the hump on this one. We used to chocolate to bribe, I mean entice, him to use the toilet. I know that ploy won't work for all kids but it did the trick for mine.

Just be patient and make it seem like a big party! Yay going potty is so fun kinda thing. Me and my daughter made a song and everything. Remind him going potty makes you big and make him feel proud if even attempts it. It takes time so just hang in there he will get it! It even helps to let them have a couple acidents, since its nice out just put him in underwear outside and then he wont like the feeling of wetting himself and fell more compelled to stay dry and go potty. Goodluck!!

My older son who is now 4 1/2 started potty training at 2 by my babysitter without consulting me first becuz her son was potty trained by 2 so she thought my son should be potty trained. He had tons of problems with it because he wasn't ready and it took over a year to get him fully potty trained and he still had accidents at night up until about 6 months ago. So I refused to start potty training on my youngest who is 2 1/2 until he was ready to go. He has watched his brother go to the bathroom for over a year now and he has decided he wants to also go potty now. He pees about every 15 minutes it seems like cuz he wants to go on the toilet now all the time. He wakes up with a dry pull up every morning and he wears underwear during the day and has no accidents. So definitely don't push them to potty train. I know it's frustrating but it worth it to wait

They'll potty train when they are ready to. Some you have to push to train, some you don't.

try to make a game out of it. i only have girls of my own, but with my little cousins and my daycare kids that are boys i had put cheerios in the toilet and told them to try to sink them with their pee. they thought it was a game and were no longer having accidents in their pull ups after 3 weeks

I have been on both sides of the coin, my oldest, now 16yrs old was potty trained before she was 2yrs and my other three have been really slow at it. My 9yr old still has problems and 2yr old daughter is just now getting the hang of it. The dr's are right the kids will click with potty training the minute they are ready.

Yep! My daughter doesn't either. It's very frustrating. We started with our son around this age (2.5) and he had it down by his 3rd birthday. And they said Girls were easier than boys! Ya right! At least not in my house. LOL I hope she'll want to get on it soon.

I got my daughter potty training books that i read to her. I read her this book called "big girls use the potty". It also came with stickers to reward her for each time she uses the potty and a chart you can stick them on. It's really cute and I think has helped her have initiative for using it.

Guess what, the doctor was right, My son Brandon turned 4 May 6th. I was so worried about him not being potty trained we tired everything. about a week before his birthday he walked up to us and said he wanted big boy pants, and has been wearing them ever since even through the nite, knock on wood only 2 ooops. I have been shocked and totally started backing off my 2 year on daugther until she is ready.



doctors said he would do it when he was ready, they were right.



good Luck
