Re: need help starting potty training
One thing I learned with my 2 older children is that a child may be physically ready long before they are emotionally ready. Even if they are initiating the interest, they may not be truly ready. Also, 22 months is quite young still. My advice would be to keep encouraging it. Keep putting him on the potty when he asks, and let him be done when he wants to be done. Eventually, he will really get the hang of it. Don't make it a negative thing by forcing him to sit on there longer than he wants to, or by punishing him when he goes in his diaper or underpants (if you are brave enough to try those already). PTing is a LONG process of learning and experiencing and finally gaining control, and the child really needs to take the control of the process to be successful. Otherwise, you are really only training yourself.
Best of luck to you, and hope this helps.
