My son is 3 years 3 months old. I randomly started trying potty training on and off since before he was two and it just caused so much stress everytime. Just before his 3rd birthday I just went for it - all or nothing, and he's been in pants ever since... but not dry. I'm really getting quite wound up now. Today he has done three wees in his pants. He won't go to the potty unless we tell him to. He won't poo in the potty. My patience is wearing so thin. It honestly feels like he'll be wetting his pants until he hits 30 or something. I just can't believe that we've gotten practically nowhere over all this time. His nephew, 20 months younger can crasp this concept better than him. Bribes, treats, reward charts all mean nothing. Sometimes he will stay dry but never takes himself to the potty or loo (he hates the loo, even with a kiddy seat). On a side note, he has been poorly on and off with colds and currently has the runs which I know will shake things up a bit, but even when well he's not doing ittttt. I know all children are different but this feels incredibly and painfully slow. On the positive, he is good at talking... Just tell me there is light at the end of this crazy long tunnel of doom and wet pants.
