I am completely at my wits end with potty training.
My son is going to be 4 in May. We first approached potty training when he was 3. He did well for awhile, but then seemed to just lose interest. We let it go for a bit, and started back seriously several months ago.
My babysitter's girls were trained on a single day. ONE day. She didn't use any "magic" method, they just seemed to get it and wanted to go on the potty. So, her and I have been trying to come up with ideas but it's hard because her girls were so easy.
We have tried the following
-stickers and a sticker book when he pees on the potty
-larger rewards for pooping on the potty
-putting him in underwear so he can feel when he's wet (he usually hates being messy but for some reason this didn't phase him)
-letting him be naked (he just pees on the floor)
-taking away whatever he's playing with if he goes in his pants
-letting him "earn back" his toys if he goes in the potty
-buying a large "prize" for him to earn when he goes on the potty all the time
The taking away of items worked for awhile but now he knows he can just earn them back by peeing on the potty. I really don't know what to do at this point. I HATE taking things away from him and I hate being upset with him. It's like he gets it, but just isn't interested.
