  • I went through this with my son. He would stand to use the bathroom but sitting was a big deal. He was scared. He would run around in circles when he had to do number 2 just so he didn't have to sit on that toilet. It was nasty because he did the number 2 anywhere but the toilet. I just allowed him to do it on his own time. I didn't pressure him at all. Then I would let him see us use the bathroom so he would know the toilet is not going to such him in. After a while he got used to it and started using it hmself.
