HELP! I have a 4 year old boy with low muscle tone called hypotonia who is still not potty trained! He can go pee in the potty if timed and told when to go and keeps a dry diaper all night but no poop in the potty at all and cannot seem to discern when to go himself. Has anyone else had such a delay with potty training either for medical or reasons or due to subornness? And yes we have tried every book, video, timer, reward, discipline, etc out there. Where do we go from here?

I've been in the same situation with my adopted son when he was at the same age of your little boy. Just be patient with him because in this development period they need our attention. At this stage little boys are observant and curious about everything, as years passed, they will learned the proper way of his own. Your training is good and this will help a lot your little boy. We as moms took this as a long-suffering until they reach their certain age of really knowing how to handle themselves...just be more patient, dear and everything you've done will pays off. Good luck.

Thanks Erlyn. He is now pooping in the potty so we are making some progress thanks for the reply, it's always nice to know your not the only one.
