Re: Can't get my 3 year old interested in going on the potty...
Okay....I talked to Jack last night about having a mommy day. I told him that he was such a big boy that he was going to have me all afternoon by himself and we would go do big boy things. He talked non-stop about his bib boy day with mommy. We went and got his haircut, went and ate McDonald's, then went to Target to get big boy pants (I knew that they were the only one's that carried Nemo). Of couse after picking up every pack once or twice he went right back to Nemo. I gave him the money and let him carry it to the register. Let him be a "big boy" and check out on his own. On the way out he told everyone what he had bought. Then we went to Wal-mart to get plain white big boy pants and some diapers for sissy.
We get home and he runs in and tells everyone about his day. Then asks to put on Nemo. Of course he didn't have them on 15 mins and had an accident. So on went the plain pants. About 30 mins later he asks to go potty. (Yes on his own!!!) Then he called me in excited that he used the big boy potty. He had a couple of more accidents, but at least he tried to make it to the bathroom. Then he decided that he wanted to go on Mommy's potty, so I took his apart and put the top on mine and put the stool to where he could get up and down. Then he got more excited about using the potty.
He only went twice today, BUT that is a total 180 to yesterday!!!! YEAH!!!
Thank you so much. I used a combination of ideas and they worked so far. If I get him pretty much on the right track, then I will do the same with Gabrielle in a couple of weeks. I can actually see the end of buying diapers in my future now!!!
