  • Is he in underwear? Take away the diapers and pull ups completely. Take a few days to just stay home and concentrate on that. Good luck!

  • Cause he doesn't bleepin' care.

    Take a deep breath. Unless he has a physical problem, he'll get there when it's important to him.

  • My bleepin' 3 year old is the same way. I figure he'll go when he's ready.

  • Lol, this is funny. I bet that is frustrating. What have you tried? My son is 4 & can't make it through the night so I feel like he will be wearing overnights for eternity :P

  • OK Potty Camp! Defiing, set up camp in the bathroom and make him sit until he goes, special needs parents do this as a means of teaching our children to potty. It works, tell him your going to do this every night until he goes on his own. make sure you have a small reward for going on his own too
