My son will be 4 in June and we have only had 2 successful encounters on the toilet (to which we responded with tons of praise and a candy treat- both which he loved). Now, he refuses to sit on the toilet. He could care less if he had to sit in a dirty diaper or underware all day and wants nothing to do with the toilet. I feel like I have tried everything under the sun and am getting no where. I realize that every kids will do it in their own time but I am really feeling like a failure. He is my oldest child and my daughter (who will be 2 in July) seems more interested in potty training then her big brother. Has anyone dealt with something like this? I would love any advice. TIA :)Answer Question

First of all you are in no way a failer. My son is 4 and just know doing his bm's on the potty after 1 1/2 years of working with him. We thought we would go crazy too! We had to start giving him a lax everyday because he was holding it in for a week at a time. It was a long road but he is finnaly doing it by himself. Good luck and remember to be patient.
