My nearly three-and-a-half-year-old son is still not potty trained. He’s been in Pull-ups since last June, sometimes he gets it and sometimes he doesn’t. Sometimes he would make great strides only to regress. We’ve tried the stars leading to prizes, chocolates as rewards and ignoring it altogether to take the pressure off him.
I wouldn’t mind so much except this is holding him back from the next class in pre-school. My poor son is the only child in his class born in 2006 and even worse, he is very tall for his age. Not to mention I am really tired of changing poopy diapers for my only child, the continued expense of diapers and the higher tuition for children still in diapers or Pull-ups.
So this weekend plus Monday we are just going to put him in underwear and pray. I’ve gotten him all his favorite characters which he seems really excited about. Also we are going to buy him his own potty as we had always used a step stool and smaller potty on top of our toilet. I’ll try to pick up some cheap winter sweats (hopefully), plus his own little couch and hope for the best.
I really hope he gets it. I know he has it in him, but do I?
