How do I teach my son that the couch is not a potty?

I keep walking into the livingroom and my son is just peeing all over the couch. Now I dont know what to do with the cushion.

  • Get some Lysol fabric cleaner. How old is he? Explain to him that pee is for the potty only.

  • He will be 3 on April 19th. Ive tryed to explain it to him but its hard he just screams and runs off. I kind of let him get away with to much.

  • Devote a week to toilet training. Get some advice from some good books on the subject. Browse at a big book store and learn what method works for you. Get your SO on board too. Do it calmly, with care, and no anger. You are the teacher of a new skill he has to learn.
