  • Don't worry about it. Pushing kids too hard can just lead to them fighting you more on potty training. My son turned 3 in December and we are still working on it. He started off doing really well around 1-2 yo and then decided he wasn't interested in it anymore. So now we are working on it again at 3 and have been since his birthday. He spends MOST of his time in undies but outings and naps are still in diapers. I'm not worried about it. My mother pressures me about it too. Only it comes with ALOT of bad advice in my opinion. Like how she made my younger brother wear his dirty undies on his head when he had an accident as punishment. You know your child better than anyone else and when they are ready for something as big as potty training to start.
