What's the best way to potty train? Is it really leaving your child without a diaper or underwear?

No: Gradually introduce patient to the potty. Make sure it is a comfortable experience. Sit him/her on the potty when you expect results and lots of praise. Children essential train themselves. The less effort we make the better. He/she will soon associate the potty as the place to pee or poop and will indicate their needs. Have books and toys available. All the best. ...Read more

How can try to potty train my child (at 5yo) who's having accidents and just doesn't want to go on his own?

Assist/ Reward: One drag on toilet training is the mixed messages a kid gets if you follow him around asking if he needs to go.

Boys: Boys do tend to potty train later than girls. I hear terms like "difficult child" and "refuses to poop". My guess is that he picks up on this vibe as well. Sometimes if pushed too hard, a child will push back or will hold back. How about reading the "potty book" to him. There are some wonderful potty videos that are fun for kids to watch. If you can make this fun and get him invested, he may be more likely to play along. If he is pressured and faces anger, he is more likely to hold on to it. ...Read more
