So, I babysit for this three year old little boy. I have been working with him, potty training since at least November of last year. He doesn't tell me that he has to go - I just ask him and put him on the potty and he goes. He comes around 7:00 in the morning and leaves around 5:00. If he doesn't arrive wet, that is his only accident from 7:00 to 5:00. I put him in regular underwear this week. His parents attempted to do the same last night (his only waking hours with them is from 5:00 to 9:00). He had an accident yesterday after he left and they have given up on the underwear. We had discussed the story that the character on his underwear would be really sad if he got wet. And the child was happy he got him wet.I am so frustrated because he should be trained by now - he's not having accidents for the ENTIRE day here - I know he's not my child, but I feel it takes both of us to work and they just don't seem concerned.Answer Question

I agree with pp-- you should sit the parents down and talk to them and both be on the same page (so to speak) with potty training. Maybe ask them how they do it at home, or say "this is what I have been doing" so you can keep the pottytraining consistent. Good luck!
