My son is 3 1/2 and he was trained by 3 years and a few months. I was so frustraited and about ready to give up when my pediatrician said for me to just STOP. He told me that is was a power trip for my son and that if I make it HIS issue, he will eventually do it. He also told me to have a child or young adult that my son looks up too, and for my son hat is his cousin Alec, tell him he didn't like kids who wet thier pants. Then when my son comes to me and tells me, I'm just supposed to say, "hmmm, ouh well." I didn't go that far though. And also, any time my son brings up going potty, I just ignore it and roll my eyes. I let him know I didn't care and wouldn't you know it, he started doing it on his own !!!! I was so excited, I couldn't believe it actually worked! Give it a try, it can't hurt!! Good luck to you!
