    Potty training problems
    An_266961 posted:
    I am on my very last straw with potty training!!! My son who is now 3 yrs and 9 months, started potty training 7 months ago. We went straight to underwear which is what worked for my daughter when she was 2. So now 7 months in he has yet to go an entire week without an accident. We have tried rewards, potty chair out in front of him, potty dances and nothing has seemed to work. He goes to school 2 days a week and uses the bathroom well while he is there. We have reminded him and taken him almost every hour of the day, he does go when he is put there. He will not tell me he has to go and won't take himself. I am trying to ease off of the reminders because he seems to be dependent on them, I try to not get upset about accidents but 7 months later and I am about to pull my hair out. Any advice?
