You are correct, it does seem to take boys a bit longer to get their potting training sorted out. The fact that your son is not scared of the toilet is a big plus, because this is where many children have a problem.It seems that the fact that you can only train your son over weekends is also a bit of a problem. It would really help is his granny would start to take him to the toilet while he is at her place during the week.It often helps to give children a complete break from potty training at this stage. Give him 10 days completely free of any mention of potties. Then start again. Use a star chart. Explain this carefully to your son. If he uses the toilet correctly he will get a star. Stick a star on a chart or picture. When he gets 3 stars in a row he will get a small reward, something that he really likes.Gradually increase the number of stars one at a time until he is using the toilet for 7 days in a row. After that he will be fine. Tell him that big boys wear pull-ups and make a big fuss if he agrees to start wearing them.
