My son will be 3 in July and will not even attempt to use the potty. He used it for my mom the other day bc my nephew, who is the same age, was going on the potty. At first he was terrified to even sit on it, now he will sit on it for a long time and do nothing and the minute i let him up and put a diaper on it he is telling me he pottied in his diaper. I am at my witts end and do not know what else to do. I have promised him the helicopter he wants, told him that he can use the computer, and that iwill take him to see a cardinal's game...but only afterhe is potty trained. Nothing is working. Please Help!!!

My 3 yr old daughter did the same thing, I tried stickers a potty dance, and even candy. I even printed out a potty chart. I finally figured out that if i give her the patience and sit in the bathroom with her and just wait with her and tell her that she can do it then she did now number 2 was a bit longer to do but now she tells me when she has to go and we go but I still have to sit in the bathroom with her i guess my only advice is patience and sitting with your son while he is trying to go hope this helps
