Potty Training 101 ?!?!

Yikes. I have always heard potty training boys was difficult, but nobody ever said it was down right impossible!! My dear son just turned three. He has never really showed any interest in potty training-no matter what technique I use..bribery, cool potty seats, big boy underwear with this favorite characters-the boy has 12 pairs of underwear sporting Spider man, Thomas the train, Nemo and after Christmas will have Diego underwear. But still no interest in "going" in the potty. After changing him the eight time today I decided to put a diaper on him-not sure who more excited about it, me or him. Maybe we'll try again tomorrow, maybe not. We will see.

I have heard many myths that you can't potty train during the winter. Not exactly sure why. Someone suggested it was because you couldn't let them run around in just underwear during the winter months-but DS was just fine running around in underwear and a t-shirt today. So that can't be it.

I did see a little potty today at the store. I might go back and pick it up I just hate the thought of having to clean that thing out after every use-DISGUSTING! But if it'll help him get the idea it'll be money well spent.

Hi, I've been lurking...Dr. Phil had a "fool-proof" way of potty training. Try his site to see if it is there. The show that had that had great videos from a couple of recalcitrant kids and it worked! Good luck!

ahh, good luck. Some kids just do it on their own time frame....it's to drive us crazy. I was SO lucky with my son and I wish I could say it was some magical technique of mine. If it wasn't covered, he would use the potty. Now my nephew was 4. Don't sweat it. It will happen.
