My 3 yr old refuses to potty train. Should i be worried?

My 3 yr old refuses to potty train. Should i be worried?

No: 3 year olds can be quite defiant and oppositional. The more you push, the more they may be stubborn. Make it available to him or her, and then back off for a couple of months. Get some fun books that make toilet flushing noises, invite child into bathroom to mimic mom or dad. Do fun things like try to sink the cheerio or toilet tissue. Applaud success but don't comment at al on failures. ...Read more

My 6 year old son has been potty trained for over 3 years but is starting to poo his pants. Help!?

My 6 year old son has been potty trained for over 3 years but is starting to poo his pants. Help!?

May be constipated: One of the most common reasons for pooping in his pants is the child is constipated, and has "overflow incontinence". If your child does not have a bm regularly, or is very quick in passing a bm, his large intestine may be full of poop, and he may be waiting until he can't hold it anymore. Check his stool pattern, and also find out why he is holding his bm's. ...Read more

My 4 yr old autistic son constantly pushes his 10 month old sister. How can I get him to stop this?

Autism: If he is truly autistic, he will need lots of "occupational therapy" to teach him normal social skills. He should not be left alone with his baby sister but punishing him verbally will probably not help. You should seek skilled therapists in autistic children for guidance on behavioral training. ...Read more

How should I teach my 4 year old son to pee standing up? I am his father.

If he's not tall : Enough to stand on the floor to urinate into the toilet, you may want to wait a while. The most stable stool that goes around a toilet is a little looster, if you feel you must teach him now. If he feels insecure or scared, he can regress to diapers or have toileting refusals. If you want him to watch you from a safe place, target a few cheerios or tinkle targets (from amazon) with your stream. ...Read more

My 3 years old toddler doesn't want to go potty . What can I do?

My 3 years old toddler doesn't want to go potty . What can I do?

Try another tack: Rehersal is an important part of potty training & learning where equipment is & practicing diaper off sitting is important early in the process. After a toddler acquires these skills it is time to back off and become the potty assistant, not the potty commander. Tell baby you will help them when they need to go and mean it. Let them pick the time & respond immediately. They may need help only once ...Read more
