Need toilet training tips please!!!!

My son is 2 1/2 and he will go on the potty at his grandma's house every weekend, all weekend long-but when he comes home trying to get him to go for me is impossible. He will scream, bite, kick, punch, and pull my hair....I have tried every type of training seat, and have even tried to get him to go by standing up on a stool...still nothing

  • Then I would go to grandma's until he is confident and the diapers are gone. Maybe a week?

  • Try doing it exactly as it is done at Grandma's. Does she reward him? Is it a more relaxed atmosphere?

  • My son took a long time to potty train fully, he was a little past 3 when it finally happened. I know this probably sounds, I don't know, country or redneck or whatever, but we started letting him run around the house naked or just in underwear, that helped him learn really fast what happend when he didn't go to the potty. He also figured out that he did NOT like to be wet or to pee on the floor. We also just completely stopped using diapers, that way there was no "safety net"- he had to try to make it himself. It didn't take but 1 or 2 times of peeing on the floor and he was done. I think they have to figure out what happens on their own before they know what to do. I do advise keeping him on the linoleum somewhere though! lol
