  • No thanks - I bought my boys matching "Kid for Rent" t-shirts when they were 4 & 2. No one took me up on it. Good try though.

  • How about we just trade. My son is 3.5 has speech delay so cannot tell me very well when he needs potty. They want him potty trained this year in school and it is getting to be a power struggle. Some days he will sit on the potty some days he wont, but HE STILL WONT GO! I really think once he goes and we make a big deal about it, he will get it, but he wont go.

  • I think you might want to try reading the book potty trained in less than a day. This technique works very well. I have a few friends who have tried it and it works and my mom used this same technique on my sis and I. I will be trying it when we are a little closer to 18 mos. My LO is showing interest. I wish you luck, but remember that when Daddy comes home there may be accidents b/c it will be a change in his routine.

  • LMAO. If someone does rent yours, send them my way. I have 2 I'll throw in at no extra charge. As for potty time, when my daughter fought going to the potty, I stopped asking her for a while. And then periodically I was bring up the subject. She used to ask for the potty and then refused to go. So I'm to the point where when she's ready she'll ask. I do ask before nap and bedtime still. Good Luck
