The potty

Hi doc

My son 26 months is going to the toilet at school but refuses to go at home. I have tried leaving him for a while but when I ask him to go to the toilet he refuses. He gets so upset when I take him in. he even bit me once

How do I approach this situation. Cos he can''t move into the next class at school if he is not potty trained. I not trying to force him but would love if he went in the potty.

From what you say here it appears that your little boy does use the toilet at school. He will not use the toilet at home.Give him a few days off when you do not even mention the potty and then try again.Tell him that he will get a reward if he tries to use the toilet. It may be better if he rather uses a potty instead of trying to get him to sit on the toilet. You will have to work out the method that seems to work best for your son.
