hay im also a mom of identical twin boys who are three!!! potty training is done. i thought that was going to be the death of me. they went when they were ready. they 3.4 years old the tenth and have been potty trained for about three months now even at bed time. good luck! discipline, hmm well every parent thinks differently. but mine were getting three warnings, and than that wasnt helping anymore. now they get one warning, 2nd is timeout for three minutes unless they are throwing a fit than they have to stay on their beds until they quit 3rd is a spanking. they dont like any of this. it has been working very well for us. good luck. what is your boys birthday? mine is June 10, 2008

We tried potty training our son from 18 months. I'll admit we were pretty frustrated and although we went through many positive weeks, we eventually were tired of trying with no success. Finally when he turned 3, he seemed ready and he spent 2 weeks wearing no pants at home. This was the only way he understood that he needed to get to a potty instead of using hispants or underwear. After 2 or 3 weeks of this he was fully potty trained.

A great thing to do with boys is to have daddy help with the training since he's a boy too!

My boys were almost 4 when they were completely potty trained. The truth is, you have to be patient. Try not to get frustrated. Keep in mind that they are not going to be in diapers their whole life. They will eventually use the potty all by themselves. My boys are now 9 and 6. Hope this encourages you!
