Any ideas?

Hi everyone.  I have a daughter who is almost 4 1/2, and potty training has been mostly a dismal failure.  She has been diagnosed with PDD (Pervasive Developmental Disorder), which basically means that she has trouble understanding what people say to her.  We have tried every method we can think of to potty train her.  Stickers on a chart with prizes every so often woks fairly well, but even that depends on her mood.  If she wants to go on the potty she will.  If not she won't.  Asking her if she needs to pee pee or poo poo in the potty is the same way.  We have thought about just letting the diapers run out and seeing what happens, but I'm a little nervous about that.

Does anyone have any other ideas?

On a related note, we will start potty training our 2 1/2 year old son soon, and I have joked a couple times that he will be potty trained first, but now I'm starting to think it might actually happen that way!

Parent-centered Approach works

Hi,

I think you are on the right track with your child. Parents need to just take charge of the situation and not wait for readiness simply take away the diapers and don't let that be an option anymore. I wrote a book about potty training boys, I'll give you a free copy if you would like. www.pottytrainingboys.net
