Hi all-- I'm hoping to get advice from mom's of boys. We are looking at preschools for my son for next fall when he will be 2.5 years old exactly. The school we like the best mandates that he MUST be potty trained before beginning. I am slightly nervous that he won't be totally trained by that time, but really I have no way of knowing. He was about a month premature and hits his milestones a little later than some but still within the normal range. Also, I've heard boys are a little more resistant to potty training than girls.
The school assures me that peer pressure will help him if he is partially trained by next fall. Problem is, I will be relying on the school for childcare so I need to be sure he is able to attend (my guess is, they won't be changing pull-ups everyday; they'd just have me keep him home until he is totally potty trained).
