Hi all, my son is 3.5 years old, he will wear undies but will not go to the toilet. Be can stay dry for up to 2 hours.
He will pee in his pants if he needs too, but not in the toilet.
This is my 3rd attempt.
I'm thinking....what do I do now?
Can he feel when he needs to do a wee? (He knows when he needs to do a poo)
Do I seek help?
He will pee with his dad on the lemon tree but the toilet nothing, he will sit on it but he thinks it's just another sitting space.
I try for it not to bug me, but it is.
I'm open to any ideas.

Toilet training refusal
I've got the same problem with my 3.5yo DD. I've just ordered the book "Ready to go! toilet time" that was recommended on here in the hopes I can convince her to go! She knows when she needs to wee, but even if I can convince her to wear undies (rare) she still won't go on the toilet.

I don't know if this is an acceptable suggestion or not, but....
How about putting 2 ping pong balls in the toilet and getting him to play sink the battle ships?
A friend of mine did this with her DS, to help improve his aim.

My DS never sat to wee - can your DH show/teach him how to wee standing up , DS just copied DH!

I wouldn't try the balls maybe something flushable.
I'll test him standing to wee. Thank you
