  • he's telling you he's not yet ready, not that he couldn't be trained. Give it a break I think and just said we'll try again next another time. Maybe take him to the store and ask him of certain styles which kind he wants to use to potty train, involve him. My youngest and oldest were so hard to train. omg thought both would wear diapers to college. now one's in college other hs and both are out of diapers. lol

  • He'll let you know when he's ready. Sometimes they have to be eased into it. Or maybe he knows he can't control it and he doesn't want to pee everywhere.

  • Try putting boxers on him. he might not like the Idea of not having nothing. If his father is around or big brother. show him know thats what big boys wear. You know kinda make it excitng. and tell him only big boy can wear boxer and if wets his self he will have to wear pampers.
