My son will be 3 in July and is still not potty training. I was working full time and am now at home full time. My son wants nothing to do with his father in the bathroom, and I have gotten him to have bowels a couple times. He wants nothing to do with peeing on the potty or the potty at all. Sitting in dirty pull ups don't bother him and I don't know what else to do. I have tried different potty's, seats prizes excitement. Any idea what could help or will he just never potty train?Answer Question

He is still young, and yes he will potty train. But you have to let him go at this at his own speed. Boys tend to be more harder to potty train, so it does take longer.
I would try:
* Letting him pick out his own potty?
* Get books about potty training with his favorite cartoon character (Elmo or Diego)
* Get toilet bowl rings (The have dissoluble ones now, once you pee on them they dissolve.)
Remember to do lots of praise, even if he doesn't do anything. Have him go in with daddy all the time, even if he doesn't sit on the toilet... Have daddy help, and praise too... But try not to push him, cause the more you push or get upset the longer it is going to take. Eventually he will come around, and have an interest. Just be consistent.
