  • My son was almost 5 when he got done, so don't feel bad. I do think you should let him pick what he wants to wear. That makes them more excited about it, and less likely to go in their undies. He might still have accidents, but he'll be less likely to get involved with playing and decide to just go in his undies b/c he doesn't want to stop. If it helps any, though, my boys both started out in briefs, then moved on to boxer briefs and now they wear both boxer briefs and boxers. I didn't want them to wear boxers, I just don't like them on men, but on little boys they are really cute! lol
