  • BUY THE LITTLE POTTY. THE CHILD SHOULD ALWAYS BE ABLE TO TOUCH THE FLOOR OF ANY SIZE POTTY. IF U WANT TO USE THE BIG POTTY I WOULD LOOK INTO THE STEP STOOLS THAT THEY MAKE TO REACH THE BIG POTTY. I ALSO THINK THAT MOST BOYS SEEM TO HAVE MORE CONTROL AT 32-36 MONTHS. MAYBE STILL TOO SOON FOR YOUR SON. I HAD MY GIRL DONE AT 15-18 MONTHS.

  • Either buy a little potty or wait until he gets over his fear.

  • I bought those diapers that had a lining so my son could feel the results of peeing in his pants...it bothered him and put an effect with the cause.

    Someone said once...let him run around in the yard naked..in the warn weather of course...I never tried it though.

  • I agree with the step stool. You could also try to put Cheerios in the toilet and make it a game to help relax him. I also took my ds in the bathroom while his dad was going, one time he peed right on the floor watching him...LOL
