My Son is 5! Still wont potty unless hes naked from the waist down

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I cant take it anymore! I have tried underwear, boxers, stickers, candy, toys, ignoring, schedules, cheering....Im exhausted! He will ONLY reliably potty if he is naked from the waist down. School starts in a month and I still don't have him trained in order to go to kindergarten. I even used school as a reward. He is so excited about school and I keep telling him that if he potties like a big boy he can go. Wont work! Nothing is physically wrong with him. We have had him checked out. The Dr. says see a psychologist about it. We have been at this for 2.5- 3 years now!!!!!! Someone please tell me this will be fixed soon. Hes the baby of my 3 but I am ready for him to grow up! I want to retire from wiping butts after 12 years straight of it. I think I have earned it!

Oh, Mama I've got no good advice for you because we are in the same boat.  Though our son (4.5) has a language delay that is causing part of the delay,  but most of it is honestly that he doesn't want to interrupt what he's doing to go.  I am SOOOOOO tired to diapers, and he is our only child, so I can't imagine how sick of it you must be. 

 

I hope someone has good advice - though I guess a psychologist might help?

No advice, but I feel your pain.  Is he basically normal, otherwise?
