  • He will soon. For now just leave him in undies. Only put elastic waist pull up pants on him.

  • As each time he goes, tell him that he should want to be a big boy and big boys wants to wear pants. If that doesn't work, then there are books that can also emphasis on that. My son took forever to be potty trained and he's not quite there yet, but he tries. He tries to go #2 on the pot, but can be impatient and leaves before the deed is done. So by the time the deed is done, he did it in his pants. He's 4 years old.

  • it takes time son had to be butt naked,at home,and had to have a large butter tub or else he wouldnt go pee.....yes thats right i said a butter tub.....he refused to pee or poop in the mind you he would NEVER poop in the butter tub,no no no,that was just for his pee!! for a while he wouldnt tell me if he had to poop,but then he got to the point where he would pee in the butter tub and poop in the potty but only if i was in there with him.....gradually he would do both in the potty,but it took time to get to that point....keep your head up,give it time,the child will get to that point soon
