Alas, we will have to agree to disagree, if this is a power struggle ( which it probably is) the harder she rides him the more stubborn he will become. That was the situation with my son, it was the only thing he had complete control over and he exerted it. To this day he is stubborn and gives me a difficult time with his constant negotiations: but he is also a straight A student, does advanced math, is an outstanding athlete and has many friends. Believe me I was beyond frustrated with him and made the same attempts: sitting on potty for hours, threats, rewards and everything!

An update:



HE DID IT!! I'm so excited and happy for him. He is so incredibly proud of himself :) Hes telling everyone he's a big boy now, and really fulfilling the role by taking extra good care of his brother. It's super cute. Ahh, I feel like a huge weight is lifted off my shoulders cause i was really torn on what to do.

I know this is an old topic, but I thought I'd update that we're officially diaper free! With only one accident (first thing in the morning before getting out of bed) he has pooped on the potty consistently.



I tell everyone who asks, if it wasnt for you ladies i would have given in and gave him a diaper. Thanks a bunch!
