My oldest boy, Tristan, has proven to be a stubborn potty trainer. How so? Well, about 6 months ago or so, I brought his potty out into the living room-just so he'd see it all the time. He went in it sooooo well...for a month. Then he was done with it. I figured it was because of his new brother, but he showed no signs of jealousy.
He knows how to pee in the big potty, standing up. He can hold in his pee-I know this because, right out of the bath, he started to pee on the carpet, but I scolded him, he stopped and walked over to the potty to finish. He notices when he pees in his diaper, because he acts worried about it when it's a fresh diaper.
Should I just start getting him to go, or keep waiting? Because I'm really not seeing when this kid will finally decide to stop wearing diapers!

I had an extremely resistant DS myself... he was 3 and 9 months and still we weren't making much progress and I tried EVERYTHING!!! I reallymean everything that I could! So I told him one day that I'd give him a quarter for each time he peed in the potty and he was dry, and he had to give me a quarter if I found he was wet!! Well, he only had to give up two quarters to figure out he like getting paid vs paying out!! (And we weren't spending any more then were were when we did the sticker chart and giving him a prize once he filled it up.) So, after 3 days of being dry I put him in underwear and haven't looked back!! That was 2 weeks ago!!! I am liberated!!! ;o) Good luck Mom... everyone kept telling me he wouldn't go to kindergarten in diapers... they were right!!! LOL

Of course he won't go to kindergarten in diapers... because he won't be allowed to go!!! - Actually he would!! There are pullups and other products for incontinence that can easily be worn under the clothing so going to Kindergarten wouldn't be a problem for any child. Not all methods work for all kids. We are also raising kids to have mind of their own, so that is a good thing as well.
