Ryan is 3 and a half and i can not get him to use the potty or the toilet, he knows when he needs to go to the toilet and asks for his pants to be put on, he gets quite upset if i ask him to even sit on his potty, Ryan has special needs but i do not think this is affecting his toilet trainig, any suggestions?

Hi Kerry. I don't have any real suggestions for you....but just wanted to let you know that I am in the same boat with you. My son is 3 years, 2 months and does not even tell me when he has to go. I am so frustrated. I don't know what to do. I have heard that sometimes boys aren't ready until around 4 years. I am really concerned about my son because he looks much older than he is. Many people ask if he and my 5 year old are twins. People are often really rude when the notice he is still in a diaper. I will have to keep checking back to your post to see if anyone has suggestions. Just remember.....you are not alone!
