Getting my 4 year old son to potty before starting school.

Hello there I am a mother of a 4 year old son. I have been trying to get him potty trained,but having a little difficulty getting him to understand that he needs to be potty trained for school. We had a couple of successes but also some drawbacks. He has speech difficulties and is speech therapy currently. I was wondering any suggestions to get him fully potty trained before he starts school in August. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I can certainly understand your concern for your son. A friend of mine said she found the article at the link helpful while potty training her child. You may want to check it out. I pray it does not take you too long. Hugs to you and your little one!

My daughter resisted every effort I made at potty training. What finally worked was a two-pronged approach. First, I convinced her that by using the toilet, she was actually "feeding the fishes". Second, I tossed out the pull-ups and let her pick out panties printed with her favorite character. Surprisingly, this worked! She didn't want to drenchTinkerbell! Every child is unique, but I believe it really helps to look at the world through a child's perspective.
