So, my ds (4) is finally going pee pee in the potty.. But he's not telling me in time so he ends up going in his underwear most of the time.  How do I get my son to tell me he has to go potty?? Any suggestion?  I'm losing my mind!

We did the naked method try no pants and show him the potty every twenty minutes or so!

Sounds like you need to be paying more attention to him. At 4 there is no excuse for accidents unless something is wrong in terms of his physical or mental growth... at least not to me.

Excuse me he's now learning to use the potty. He's not potty trained yet.

I agree with this lady. We did the naked thing (only in the house though) with our lg & she's almost completely pt at two... Other than that, he know's when he's ready for it. Try showing him the potty every half hour or so & asking him if he's got to go, and if he says he doesn't just have him try anyway...

So set a timer and ask him every 30 minutes... he's 4 years old he should be well past potty training by now.

He will be 4 next Wednesday.. U act like some children can't be delayed without something being wrong with them. My child is fine we just don't push things and let the progress on they're own.

Hugs to you sincei know how it feels to have a "late" trainer.  Does he have to tell you or can he go on his own to the bathroom?  Perhaps have a potty chair out in main living space for him as well as just running around bare butt when there is no company.  On the market there is a toddler/preschooler urinal for boys as well so they can stand and be able to aim better than on a large toilet.

He hasn't shown any interest yt. We don't force things we let them do things on their own.
