Not a Question, but I watched Dr. Phil today

and I wish we could help the couple, Julie and her hubby of the Dr.Phil show about potty training their almost 4yr.old son Michael, he won't go poop on the potty! He IS running "the show", kids are so smart these days. Just a thought :)

With my 2 1/2 yr.old I took couple days off and let him run around naked, I used chocolate as a reward because my kids don't eat chocolate or candy so it was very special. Pull-ups are the worst thing when potty training because the kids know they won't leak like real undies. Same kid now 3 1/2yr.old has been potty trained 100% including nights since May, last week I put on pull-ups because I couldn't find any little undies. My little smart boy, pooped several times in the row in the pull up because he knew they were DIAPERS and was to lazy to run to the potty even though he was potty trained since May. SO SMART :) It took me a little bit of thinking to figure what was going on. Good luck Moms ;))))))) !!!!!

Thanks for sharing! My son is only 1 yr 4 months and we have been trying to teach him. We are not expecting him to be potty trained right away, but hopefully with introducing it sooner, he will get the hang of it sooner. I am new at this! lol. I missed parts of the show, but did see some. Its kinda scary. Good luck with the training!!!

Very nice sugestions, I am trying to potty train my little one she is 1 yr 9 months and really would love to have her trained by 2 ( I am dreaming right) any way she knows about the potty train, she sits on it for a while but does not do anything, she takes her dolls there and say they are either pooping or pipping.... too funny..... but I am trying so hard, I will start doing what you did have her run around naked and see if that helps...
