  • put him in regular panties, get rid of all diapers & pullups, and tell him its time to be a big boy and pee and poop in the potty. there will be accidents, but when he figures out that its uncomfortable, he will go in the potty. They have training panties that are thicker and will absorb more so less will end up on the floor, but have the same effect as regular panties.

  • You put him on the toilet wheather he likes it or not. and keep on doing it. Tell he gets the idea that , that is where he pees and poops. Did you just have another child?

  • You have to stay in the bathroom with him.
    Or just give up and put diapers back on him and wait tell he want to be trained. Like self weening, but self toilet training.
