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. If he doesn't, he is sad he can't produce, if he needs to go & you are not there asking, he may not be able to hold it until you do.(again sad). If you tell him you will help, he picks the time (which is crucial)& you assist.(no sadness).A reward system helps motivate & can work overnight. ...Read more

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
