Need Advice Help!

I have a 3 year old son who somehow refuses to be potty trained. I've tried so many ways into getting him to go either on his little toilet or the big one, we bought him the little seat to put on the big toilet thinking that will help but it didn't. I tell him I'll reward him if he goes on either one, he still wearing diapers even training pants. I want to put him in pre-school next year but at this stage I don't know if he'll learn by next fall hoping he will. What can I do?

I've heard about some kind of things you put in the toilet for little boys to aim at. Not only have I've heard that it helps them learn to aim and not get the seat wet but it helps with potty training too because it is like a game to them. Hope this helps.

Put him in daycare. When the other kids seem him in diapers and start to tease him you will be amazed how quickly he becomes potty trained.

But wouldn't that be traumatic for him?

Re: Need Advice Help!

I absolutely disagree with putting him in daycare so that he can be teased. How wrong is that?!?! My son will be 4 in Oct and is just now potty trained during the day. I tried everything with him from stickers to potty training in a day. Nothing worked with him. Finally, he just decided it was time. We let him pick out the underwear and went from there. I understand how you feel that he is behind on this because I felt the same way. It really is true when they say the normal time to potty train is anytime before Kindergarten. My Ped told me that she had never seen a child start Kindergarten in diapers so I needed to relax. It happened and I felt stupid for worrying. Good luck to you and know that it will happen sooner than later
