My granddaughter is just over 2 and hides in a corner to poop in her diaper, so I thought maybe she was ready. Take her diaper off and put her on the potty chair. Nope. She's worried she's going to poop without a diaper on and holds her bottom, looks distressed, and asks for a diaper. And then she poops once she has one on. So she's not ready. When she is, she will let us know.


It also freaks her out to pee without a diaper on. She when she's wet, she wants it changed. Same thing - I've tried putting her on the potty chair or having her go without a diaper for a while and try to pee. It distresses her to pee without a diaper on. She pees in her diaper and then lies on the floor, on her back, wherever she is, and waits for someone to come by and notice that she's waiting to have her diaper changed. It's so funny to walk into the kitchen and see her there on the floor, waiting.


I figure by next summer she'll be wanting out of her diapers.

Perhaps I missed it, how old were your kids when you potty trained them?

Where the hell did you read this anywhere in this thread, or anywhere else in any written literature on Earth for that matter?

I wonder about people who have to say stupid stuff like this just to cling to their point of view that everyone else is wrong.

My sons 4 and he won't go on the potty he's scared so each time he goes in the potty he gets candy but if he doesn't go in the potty he doesn't get candy but if he doesn't get his own way he kicks off so I think it's like everyone else's son or daughter at this age but when me and my wife split up he would go there and she would give him baby food for a punishment and a spank now I don't agree with that tell me how I can potty train my son instead of treat him like a animal

Don't worry, when these judgmental people get old, they may suffer incontinence and then they will remember the nasty comments they made about children who struggle with bed wetting and potty training.

I'm guessing your reading comprehension isn't as good as you think it is.

Punishment for potty training not only does not work, but it can cause a lot of problems.

If he is scared, you need to address that - it could be a sensory issue or something like *falling in to the toilet.* Does he use a small potty chair or the seat that goes on the toilet? Does he have a stool he can use to climb up to the seat himself if he uses the *big toilet?* Does the noise of the flushing scare him?

Is he constipated at all? Sometimes miralax can help if he is backed up.

How good is his language? Can he tell you when he needs to go?

Have you tried teaching him to pee standing up? Often this is helpful for boys - you can put a cheerio in the toilet bowl and have him aim at it?

Have you been using any videos to help him see what to do. The Tom's Toilet Triumph from the Australian government may help.

Good luck!
