  • my son was very hard to potty train. But last year at the age 3 we were successful! I quit trying to get him to go potty when I thought he could go and I quit scolding him when he didnt use the potty and used his pull up. I did away with pull ups all together like my mother said and started putting cotton underwear on during the day, this was to make him feel like a "big boy". And it worked...he had a few accidents during the day made him sit in it for 5 mins n asked him if he liked being wet and he indeed did not so he just started to go. its not very successful when the other parties arent helping. i wish you all the luck :)
