  • sadly, he probably wasn't quite ready yet. Give him a break for a few weeks, then try again. If you try and force it, it will take longer. When they are ready, it should only take a few days. (I am getting ready to potty train in a few weeks, but my SIL is an expert- she potty trains kids with autism)
