Hello! This is my first post on the bump...everyone was so helpful on the knot that I thought I would make my first post asking for help on this site.
My son is 3 1/2, and will be 4 in June. He's in daycare as me and his father work during the day. We just started potty training and have been doing it on and off for a couple weeks. We nixed pull ups and diapers for a few days but he didnt seem to care if he wet his pants. In fact, he wouldn't tell me if he had an accident even if I pretended I didnt see it. We tried taking the potty every where in the house with us and sitting on it every 20-30 minutes and giving him lots of liquids to make sure he needed to go, and he would hold it. As I type this, hes sitting on his potty now and we've been trying since 4pm (its 8pm now). So now we're trying to nakie tactic so I can make sure he knows not to pee on anything except for in the potty. He's stopped mid stream before in the bath tub so I know he has good bladder control. I've tried rewards like suckers, m&ms, he's watched daddy pee at the cheerios and has no interest in that...I've even promised him a new spiderman toy which he says to me all the time "spiderman toy if I go potty?" One thing I dont want to admit to myself is that he might just not be ready and doesnt know how to relax himself so he goes in the potty just like he does in his undies or diaper. But he likes his potty and doesnt have any problems with sitting on it and even tells me that he wants to sit on it. Is it possible hes just not ready at almost 4 or is there anything else I can try?
