  • sorry i don't have an answer, instead what else are you doing? My 31/2 yr old won't go . he will sit on the potty and go pee pee, but that is it, but yeah in a diaper he will proudly do his business. have you tried leting him pick out his own underwear.

  • Take a book or toy that the kid really really likes away for a few days, then give it back to him when he's on the potty, and ONLY when he's on the potty.
    Good luck!
