  • When he goes in his pants, who cleans up the puddle? Who carries the poop to the potty? He should.
    I'd try the bare-butt method at home. Even then, if he goes on the floor, he mops up the pee and takes the poop to the potty for flushing. Not as punishment but as a "You are old enough to clean up after yourself" big kid, matter-of-fact way.

  • i would leave my son in his underwear because i was so paranoid that he was gonna pee on the carpet again lol and i would constantly ask him if he had to use the restroom but if ur son doesn't tell you when he has to go i would keep a timer and sit him on the toilet every 30 minutes and make him sit there until he went pee. it really helped when i put his little toilet in the living room it was so much more convenient for him since he could sit there and watch tv or play with his toys. good luck it's soooo much better when they're potty trained
