Potty training?????

My son, has the peepe down good, but refuses to sit down on the potty to poop. We try to keep up with the reminders and also told him that we would reward him once he does it...... Any suggestions for this working mom.

  • catch him in the act and get him there.. just show him that nothing bad happens and make sure his potty chair has a comfy seat and doesnt pinch his poor behind when he sits there.

  • Hi,
    I did that a few times and even sat there with him and told him that it was o.k., but he didn't want to hear it and got up. I will try again and maybe bring his fav book this time. TKS

  • How old is your son? Sometimes I think we just gotta wait until the kid is ready - the time will come when it comes . . . that time is usually once we (parents) stop stressing about and pushing for it. Hang in there, mama xoxo!
