I am Janie and I am a 21 year old single mom of a stubborn immature 4 year old. We are having problems with potty training. He is still in Pull-ups and I am worrying about him not being ready to start Pre-K next year. Any of you moms dealt with this or dealing with this?

I would not use pull-ups except for overnight. Pull-ups are too much like diapers. I find that by that age they know how to go potty (know to sit on the potty and also can recognize when they need to go). So if you have been consistant with taking him to the potty then I would put him in underwear. There are going to be accidents, but most of the time kids don't like the feeling of wet underwear and pants. After a few accidents they start to try to make it to the potty more often.

Mine is not nearly that age, but wondering how you are training him and how consistent are you with him, are you trying the reward system at all?
