  • I am having troubles with mine as well, he will be 3 in July! I am not that stressed about it but I was just thinking about it earlier and had an idea of a method which I am going to that I have actually NEVER had anyone suggest to me (and I have received LOTS of suggestions). I will let you know if I have any success.

  • My daughter will be 3 in September and I'm not stressing about it. She occasionally agrees to use the toilet or the potty (mostly seh prefers the toilet) but I'm not worried about it. I have 6 kids and have learned (the hard way) that it's just not worth it to try to train a child who isn't ready. Soooo much easier if you just wait. He WILL come around eventually and when you have his cooperation, it's a breeze.

  • it's just that i have 2 babies in diapers and it's not doing so good on our wallet :( it's hard to buy diapers for both kids.

  • google 'toilet training readiness' for useful info and to see if he really is ready.
