are you using nappys (diapers)? if so i would stop and only use underwear, this helps you know when he is having an accident and you can rush him to the toilet for him to finish his business there, also if he hasn't got a diaper on, he may not feel as comfortable wetting his pants. Also, maybe he is scared sitting on the toilet, i got a cushion seat for our toilet which makes the hole smaller so they dont feel like they'll fall in, my son loves that he can put it on himself (it has ducks on it which is also fun). perhaps another way is letting them wee in the backyard, let him choose the spot, then next time say "if you go on the toilet this time, next time you can go outside" The only other advise i have is be positive with the slightest progress, try not to get angry as it will stress them and they'll fall behind again. take a deep breath and persevere. Goodluck.
