Adam is 28 months and is not at all interested in using his potty. We have read numerous books, watched videos etc. and nothing has really worked in getting him to practice. He has his little potty chair and knows exactly what it is for because he has no problem telling you but if we ask if he wants to use it he says "Nope" and runs to hide. We backed off because we didn't want to push him and at every opportunity we try to tell him what mommy or daddy are doing and he is definately curious. I know that boys do take longer at times, but I wonder "how long"? because let's just say that things are going into that diaper that are horrific and would be much better flushed away. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Another concern is that I know we are supposed to watch for a pattern and then take him to the toilet to encourage him but he doesn't seem to have a specific time of day and just goes when he feels like it. Lately he will tell us when he has gone and ask to have his diaper changed which may be a good sign? Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
