ok..here's the deal...he needs to be in control, so here is what I did with my 3&1/2yr old stepson after he moved in with us.. I was NOT willing to change a diaper on a kid that big anymore, so I bought him a 6 pack of white underwear, and I explained to him that we use the toilet, period. I told him that it was his choice now if he wanted to be clean or dirty, if he peed his pants he would have to change them, or if he pooped in them, he would have to clean up...or not, his choice, but I was done...and if he chose to be dirty, people wouldnt want to play with him..so the next day (Monday) I gave him underwear and helped him put them on...about 20 minutes later he looked me square in the eye and peed.. I ignored him, after about 5 minutes my husband came in and said, "Whew, something stinks!" I said, "Yeah, I know, I wonder what it is?"

Jay sat in his wet pants for a total of 20 minutes and then went and changed. I didnt say a word. It was his choice and once he made it, he stayed clean and dry. On Friday, I took him to Walmart to buy superhero underwear, and told him that superheros do not like to be peed on..He has been clean and dry ever since... It is a battle over control at this age.. He is comfortable with you taking care of his needs, and doesnt want to change, if you tell him no more, and he is big enough to do it himself..when he sees you mean business he will not want to stink and be wet.My oldest was PY at 18mos, my twins were 2yrs and 2.2yrs so I know it can be done!!
