Toilet training

hello doc,

my two yr old son is not yet toilet trained.
he is on diapers when he is sleeping and on
trainer pants otherwise. he usually lets me
know before/after he pees/poohs most of the time.
but nowadays he still informs me before
he poohs but he doesnt even know when he
pee, whether it is middle of his play
or while watching tv. he even doesnt mind his
wet pants. why does this happen? should
i be concerned?

Your little boy is very young still and little boys often are not as easy to potty train as little girls of this age.It always helps to give children a break from potty training if they are having a bit of a problem with it. So give him a break for at least 10 days and then to start all over again.Your son is still too young to try to use a star chart and reward method.Let him continue to wear his trainer pants during the day. Give him lots of praise when he gets things right.
