Why

Does my child act like he's being murdered whenever I put pull ups on him? Screaming like he's in pain or something? Kicking me?

Is this normal?

Maybe he is really intent on wearing "big boy underpants" and feels like the pull ups are a baby thing.

My guess is because he gets some kind of response from you that he likes controlling. Do you go all apologetic and stuff when he's performing these antics (honey I'm sorry, I know you don't like them, but you have to wear them, please)? If so, stop. Be completely intentional* about it and tell him to stop in a firm, strong voice.

My other question is does he have sensory problems?

*unemotional. I really hate my phone's auto fill.

I have tried naked, cloth under wear. Everything. He is violently angry about potty training it self. I give up.

I probably look mad. Because I hold him down and put them on him. But I am not sweet about him acting like a jerk. Fuck that.

Take his lead. Do not force potty training. It could lead to constipation and thats not something you want to deal with.

How old is he?

He has attitude problems and violence problems. Which I have been told are in the normal range of toddler behavior.

Almost 3. He needs to start doing this before pre school. It isn't an option to wait much longer.

Be consistent. He'll get used to them.
