I am just wondering if anyone has had experience with toilet training an older child who is very stubborn and generally refuses to use the toilet.
Due to him getting really upset about it we just left it a while and didn't push it but now we are really trying to get him using the toilet before he starts kindergarten in a month's time.
We now have him in underwear all day but he just won't use the toilet. He holds on for ages or he will just wet himself. Today he even soiled himself. He seems to be refusing to come to us to tell us he needs to go. He has so far used a potty three times but today it was only after I found him sitting on his bed on a towel because he had wet himself. If we even broach the subject now he just shakes his head and refuses to talk about it!!!
It is like a power struggle now. I have a younger toddler too and a baby on the way and it is like he just wants to hang on to being a baby for some reason.
