Potty training is a test of patience. When you want your kid to go in the toilet, not potty, he refuses but goes along with you. Many friends are like they would go biserk with their kid during potty training but I just say when it happens you will have patience and they will pee in the toilet. Yesterday my bil was seeing how I was struggling with getting Billy to the toilet every few minutes. His advice, just give up. My reply, "no, he has to learn eventually. He'll get it." My younger bil was helping with the training too. He would put Billy on the toilet every few minutes because he kept saying he had to go poo. I did not want to throw away any pants due to poo (and trust me, I would throw it away rather than wash it).
Just right now, actually couple of minutes ago, Billy kept saying he had to poo. So I would put him on the toilet. "I don't want to go", he'd say as soon as his bottom hit the toilet seat. Finally after five or six attempts, he peed on the bathroom floor.
