My son is almost 3 and has no interest in actually going potty on the toilet. He likes reading books about it, letting his animals go and sit on the potty. He will not sit long enough to go. He doesn't seem to mind the feeling of being wet or poopy. He learns other things very quickly but this is just not happening...any help?Answer Question

Some kids are just resistant to potty training including my daughter who is now 5. She was not talking at the normal potty training age as she has a speech delay so we ran into trouble because she couldn't or wouldn't communicate. Shes gotten much better with a lot of work with her speech therapist but were still fighting the potty training. She can and will go on the potty when she realizes she lost the battle.. but she is very headstrong and thinks she can do whatever she wants lol.
Recently we decided to give her a big reward when she fills her potty chart ( her first trip to the zoo). And we drew pictures of her and the potty and then her going to the zoo and hung them on the bathroom wall where she can see them on the potty. This seems to be encouraging her as shes gone quite a few times in the past two days. Shes learns best visually so we made it fun and artistic.
