  • He won't do it until he is ready. He is a BOY... get a new sitter... some boys aren't ready til they are at least 3.

  • you CANNOT force a child to potty train, they will do it when they are can be a scary experience for a child so if you try to force it you can actually be going backwards in potty training instead of forwards...and it sounds like your sitter just doesnt want to deal with diapers. So in this case its time to try a new sitter. What would she do if your kid had an accident??? Even after they are fully potty trained they are still likely to have accidents once in a while, plus i have heard boys can take a bit longer to potty train.
