Thank you, I'm so proud of him My 3 year olds been potty trained for a while now and i had my doubts it would ever.
Obviously my 9 year old is suitably unimpressed and wont even attempt to fake being pleased about his brothers success.

Fantastic! Can you get him to have a word with my toddler? I said I'd potty train him over the summer but I just can't face it.

He will sit on the loo but there's a lot of frantic head shake ing "Nooo!"

His will power is way beyond mine. There will be one broken will and believe me, it will not be him.

My eldest isn't impressed either btw. I've heard lots of "how old I was I when I was potty trained? How old was ds2? ( dyspraxia who piddled all over the place for six whole months) when will ds3 be using the potty?"

okay the good news is he's still interested in going, When at home he will decide to use the potty most of the time. How to i start with outside the house, he will not tell anyone he needs to go and I'm pretty sure he's demand avoidant so he won't tell you when you ask?

I don't know what everyone else does but my advice would be to get home 100% first, Before even thinking about outside or at school.
This is what i did when mini-pirate started being interested at 4 / 5, pullups in the house and nappies everywhere else. Once he was more able to recognizes his bodies signals, it was for wee at first (About a year later) I was able to gently encourage and then get school involved in doing the same. Poo was a completely different story though.
He's 8 in October is in underpants at home and school, and mostly when we are outside. But we still have nappies for when we go out of our comfort zone, for bed, and sometimes when he decides he needs to use one for a poo (We haven't worked out a pattern in this, but i have a feeling it's after he's had a hard poo he likes a nappy for next time.)

Thank you pirate, I will only focus on home first.
He's still taking himself off to the toilet most of the time i can't believe it.
