Re: Almost-4-year-old won't go potty - and I'm going NUTS!
My son was almost 5 before he used the potty and I was very frustrated too. I had his dad and his older brother "showing him the fun using the potty" and how "cool" it was to use the potty. Then I kept him naked and constantly, every 5 mins, asked him if he had to go potty. But not letting it be a big deal, either. Then one day when I left the room he went! Boy did we do the happy dance! All of us were laughing and jumping for joy, he couldnt beleive the fuss we were making! It helped me to know that some boys , maybe even most, take longer to potty train. I don't think you should worry too much over this. It will happen. Good luck!
