In my opinion, I don't believe in forcing a child to become potty trained, which is what the above moms have basically done. THIS IS ALL IN MY OPINION. DON'T LIKE IT, DON'T READ ANY FURTHER. I have three children. 9 years old, 6 years old, and 30 months. My 9 year old was fully potty trained at 2 years old. With him, he was wetting less so we introduced him to pull ups and showed him what the potty was for. He did the rest on his own. My 6 year old still wets the bed every now and then at night, but is taking DDAVP to reduce that. Otherwise, he was potty trained by 3 years old, by doing the same method as my oldest son. My daughter still wets quite a bit during the day, and has no interest in the potty. She has three potty chairs, and a seat for the toilet. We've tried pull ups with her and told her what they're for, and showed her, but she's not interested.
I think children will potty train when they're ready.
