Potty training

My son is 3 next month so I thought I’d try AGAIN to get him potty train.

Started Tuesday he did a wee and half a poo on the potty as well as a couple of accidents. He also kept running to it and shouting wee wee although not doing anything. Happy he knows what to do.

But yesterday every time I asked if he wants a wee/poo be gets angry. He knows if he has a accident as he will tell me.

Do I keep asking or let him lead? It’s frustrating as I have a baby too so trying to keep my eyes everywhere is proving hard work. Not too mention an older boy at school so school runs are a big test.

Any advice on how to get him used too it?

He has done a wee this morning on it after telling me and was very proud of himself so I obviously praised him.

I will continue with it as I definitely think he’s ready he just happens to be very strong willed and stubborn like daddy!

I’d definitely continue. Things that helped us we’re:

Getting some books about potty training, your library will probably have a few.

Taking them shopping to buy “big boy” pants and letting them choose.

Going into the garden for as much of the day as possible with the potty.

Tonnes of praise.
