  • Not much you can do actually. Because its your "fault" that he doesnt listen to -any-one.

    Dont get me wrong, im not bashing or anything. But its all a matter of parenting. Try time outs and tell your child if he doesnt listen to you, then you wont listen to him/her anymore either.

    Do not spank, yell or stuff like that. it will make it worse.

  • Your a push over and he knows it. Just let him potty train himself. Or make him under stand weather he likes it or not he is going to be potty trained.  Your will has to be stronger then his.

  • I agree let potty trainning go. He will potty train himself. My oldest potty trainned himself at 3 1/2 yrs, my 2nd son potty trainned himself at 21mo. I didn't push at all

  • The more big deal you make of this the more he will resist. Boys are tough to train sometimes. Never scold or shame him or this will take forever...take a break and try again in a month or two. I know it is frustrating but hang in there!
