Today we continue our potty-training mini series as part of our ongoing “The First Years” series that is covering the most precious little years! I’m delighted to have Savannah from Ramblings of a Christian Mom guest posting today! Please pay her blog a visit!
Guest Post by Savannah of Ramblings of a Christian Mom
People thought they were being encouraging when they kept telling me that my son, Tobias, would eventually potty-train. “After all, he won’t go to kindergarten in diapers!”
This was true; only because we’re homeschooling. He was still in diapers the September he would have started Junior Kindergarten, a few months before his 4th birthday. I tried to do all the right potty-training things. I bought a potty very early, before he was 2, and we practiced sitting on it just to get used to it. Sometimes I would put him on the toilet with a potty ring on it and read a story just in case something happened.
A while after he turned 2, I tried sticking him in underwear and potty-training him. He just didn’t care if he was sitting in wet pants or not. He would freak out if I made him take off his own wet undies. After a while, I decided he just wasn’t ready.

Fast forward a few months, when he was closer to 3. Again, on went the undies. I would make him sit on the potty every 1/2 hour for a few minutes to see if he had to pee. Most often, he would pee within minutes of getting up. Again, every time I made him change his undies himself he would cry and cry. I would get frustrated; he got frustrated. I had people on all sides telling me that if I gave up, I was letting him win. After almost a week of this, I finally put him back in diapers.
Let this be the biggest lesson I learned about potty-training: It’s OK to try again later!
Tobi is very strong willed. I knew by the time he was 3 that he had the control to potty-train, he just didn’t want to, and I couldn’t force him. I finally realized that that was OK.
The next time, I waited until my daughter Annabel, who is 16 months younger than Tobi, was just over 2 years old. By this point my 2nd son Josiah had come along, and we had 3 in diapers.
I put both Tobi and Annabel in undies and sat them side by side on matching potties (that we happened to find a different times at different thrift stores!). Again, Tobi didn’t care to really try. But at least Annabel potty-trained that week!

I didn’t let myself get worked up about Tobi’s refusing to potty-train this time. I told Tobi every reason I could think of how it would benefit him to use the toilet instead of diapers, but he didn’t want to. So I let it go. It was so much less stressful!
It wasn’t long before Tobi started complaining that the tabs on his diapers were rubbing his sides and hurting. I kept telling him that it was because he was getting too big for diapers. When we reached the end of the package of diapers, I told him, “That’s it. You keep saying that the diapers hurt you; that’s because you’ve gotten too big for diapers. This is the last diaper. After this, you’ll have to wear undies.”
And he accepted it! From that day on, day and night, he was potty-trained! Sure, he sometimes has the “too-busy-playing, waited-too-long” accidents that all boys and girls have. But other than that, he has been clean and dry!
He just had to decide for himself that he was ready to use the toilet like a big boy. As soon as he accepted my reasoning as to why he couldn’t wear diapers any more, he was fine! He was just a few months short of turning 4.
I know that some people won’t agree with how I handled potty-training my son. I heard many many times that I had to “be the mom” and not give in until he used the potty. I had people telling me that I should punish him every time he had an accident when he was refusing to potty-train. I was told about several children who potty-trained themselves at 2 years of age or younger (why do people think it’s encouraging when someone is struggling with something, to talk about how they never struggled with it–and not actually offer any encouragement?)

Before I decided that it was OK to let Tobi wait until he was ready, I was frustrated, stressed, embarrassed to have an almost-4-year-old in diapers, and I felt like a bad Mom. What was I doing with 3 kids when I couldn’t even potty-train my son?
If you’re having a hard time potty-training your child, I hope this can be encouraging for you. He will eventually potty-train! Don’t worry about what every one else says; their children aren’t your child. What worked for them won’t necessarily work for you. You know your child best!
A child has to be physically ready in order to potty-train, but he also has to be emotionally and mentally ready! If potty-training becomes a stressful negative thing (like I let it become) it will take longer. They won’t want anything to do with it if they see that it’s making Mommy upset. And most of all, it’s OK to try again later; it’s not giving up, it’s giving your child more time to grow up.

Thank you so much for this post! I’m a mom of 2…almost 3 year old boy and an 18 month old girl. They are both VERY strong willed and we are having a difficult time potty training my son. I keep feeling like we need to wait until he is ready but everyone seems to have a different opinion and moms are telling me their kids were trained at 18 months and I’m thinking I’m doing something wrong! I was feeling ok that he was 2 and not trained but he is almost 3 and I’m feeling pressure.
This was a guest post, but I want to encourage you, Krysta–my oldest didn’t potty train until 4!! She is still in Pull-Ups at night and is 4 1/2. It will happen! We have pretty much decided not to push our second–who is 27 months–until she turns 3. I think we started with our oldest before she was ready.
I’m so glad I found this. I’m having this exact problem and same responses from friends and family. I am so frustrated. I know he knows what we want from him. He just doesn’t want to do it. Praying for success soon!!
Thank you for this post. It’s exactly what I’m going through right now with my 3 1/2 year-old son. It’s good to know I’m not alone and that he will, eventually, get it for good. I posted my own experience and referenced this post, if you want to read it: http://notjustasahm.wordpress.com/2013/08/07/when-you-gotta-go/
Thanks again! God bless!
This post was such a blessing. I am in the middle of potty training my 3 1/2 year old daughter (have been off and on for over a year). I swear, if one more person tells me that girls are easier and should be potty trained by 2, I’m going to cry. Really appreciate the encouragement- thank you!
This sounds so much like my son! He is almost three and we have tried 3 times to potty train. I’ve done the naked thing, putting him straight in underwear, bribery, everything! He does great for 2 days and then stops! He doesn’t care if he is wet or dirty; he just keeps playing! I guess there was a reason my pediatrician laughed last year when I said I was going to try training him! He knew my son was stubborn and strong willed! He always has been! I am so glad to know I am not the only one, and I am sure he will potty train as soon as he decides too! Now to find something to make him want to!
I’m curious what ended up working! This is exactly where I am right now. My son will be 4 in October and I don’t know how to make him care. ?
Thank you so much for this post. This is much like the experience Im having with my little one. I keep thinking Im making so many mistakes and shouldve introduced the potty sooner but really I just have a very strong willed child. She doesnt care if shes wet and she will fight me on changing underwear that shes gotten dirty. Part of me wishes she had potty trained early but Im not at all looking forward to using public restrooms and I know she has the rest of her life to use the toilet! Im doing all I know how to do and we will get there one day. thank you so much for the right kind of encouragement 🙂
Thank you for your honesty and encouragement. We have 6 healthy children and the oldest 5 (age 8 and down) are still in diapers at night. I tried so many things that people say “you are suppose to do.” Nothing worked and diapers were getting too expensive. I did start potty training them early, and we did have a tragedy in our family, so I know all these things are factors in this too. I tried taking them out of diapers and just letting them wet, but I couldn’t do bed laundry every day and it was not worth saving the extra money. My husband got a second job and we put them back in diapers, knowing eventually they will grow out of it. I have been making them drink a lot of water ( in excess) during the day starting with a full glass before breakfast. It IS helping to stretch their bladder and they definitely don’t stink as bad. There is hope! They are actually staying dry all night, every once in a while. Those are VERY happy days for us all! 🙂
Thank you for this post! I agree with giving them the opportunity to teach them to potty train but NOT to punish the child for not being ready yet. You kept teaching him all the skills and allowed him to choose the time to be follow through.
Well said! Our grandson was NOT ready. He knew exactly what was wanted from him, but for some reason, decided he didn’t want to. He’s not three yet (almost) but now is coming along well, although not perfect. Appreciate most of all that parents shouldn’t stress out and should train their children the way they think is best. Children are people and have their own train of thoughts! 🙂
Thanks for your timely post! I’ve been getting yelled at for over a year for caudeling my son. And for not spanking him every time he pee’d anywhere but the potty! I’ve actually had several people from church offer to take over his potty training. .”because we know how to get results”
And I’ve been honestly thinking about letting them.. but hating that thought!
I needed this!
I know this is an old post. But the very idea that you would let someone from your church take over potty training b/c why? They would spank him if he didn’t get it exactly right? It’s not life and death. It’s potty training. If someone else raised a hand to my child for any reason…now that might be a life and death moment for THEM.
I really needed this. I’ve been working with my almost 4-year-old son, and he is so uninterested. He is showing some promising signs this week, though. Prayers appreciated! 🙂
BTW, Erin, I really like your blog. I may not read every post, but when I do, it’s always good. Thanks for the guest post, Savannah!
[email protected] better way to homeschool
for the many moms who are in the trenches while they are potty training, I thank you for sharing your “success”. Success because although everyone around you had advice, you did what was best for you and your son. I have 5 sons. Some were easy and some were not to potty train. The longest was four and a half years. All my boys are now older than 9 and have been potty trained for years now:). It is such a crazy season. It seems like everyone else’s kids are trained at early years when our op are not… But that is the same with everything. Some walk early, some talk early, some drive early, shoot some even have their own babies early. I am a firm believer in trusting God, being in sync with my husband, and enjoying kid’s uniqueness as they grow. Even their uniqueness in things like potty training!
I needed this post so much. Thank you for sharing. My son is now 5 years old and the most strong willed stubborn child ever. And he is still not potty trained. He knows how to use the bathroom, I’ve seen him do it but he just refused to go. He doesn’t care if he sits in wet or dirty pants and he doesn’t care if he has to clean up his mess. I have tried everything out there and nothing is successful. I have had many parents and family members tell me how horrible of a job I’m doing because I can’t get my child potty trained. Thank you for showing me that I am not failing.
Hugs to you today, Jasmine! My oldest finally trained at 4, but she is a girl, and girls train faster. It has been one of my hardest parenting challenges yet! Have a good day and stay strong!
Thank you so much for this post! I almost welled up with tears to know I am not the only one struggling with this. My son, too, is almost 4 and still struggles with using the potty consistently. All of my friends children have been potty trained for months if not years. I feel like I am being a bad mom having not potty trained him by now. Sometimes I even get frustrated with him when he doesn’t go (I know. I’m horrible and I hate it). I just feel a lot of pressure with him having to start pre-k that he has to use the potty, since that is a requirement.
This post is encouraging. He will use it when he is ready and I just have to wait on that and love on him in the meantime. Thanks for sharing!
Thankyou so much for this encouraging post.
My daughter will be 3 in two weeks time and we have been potty training since October. It’s driving me to distraction. It’s so nice to hear of another mum who has a child who simply doesn’t mind sitting in their own filth!! She’s fine with weeing. She simply prefers not to poo on the potty or toilet but in her pants instead. If we happen to catch her with her ‘pooing face’ and we’re quick enough, then we have success. But it seems that no amount of praise, sticker charts, rewards with chocolate/bubbles etc etc will give her the incentive to poo regularly on the toilet. She’s simply chosen not to do it at the moment. As irritating as I find it!
Thankyou for the reassurance.
It will happen…my first ended up not training until age 4, so we let our 2nd train herself! She was 3 years and 4 months but it was so much easier!
Thank you for this post! My son will be 4 in May and is still in pull-ups 🙁 After realizing that we had tried to push potty training too early with my daughter. We offered the potty to my son but waited for him to show interest. That never happened. Then he was about to start preschool and we tried all summer without success. He is pretty good about number 1 if he is in regular underwear, but refuses number 2 on the potty. He started having constipation issues at 3 months, and has always struggled with it. Dealing with 2 or 3 number 2 accidents a day is just overwhelming. So we went back to pull-ups, since it is easier to deal with the number 2 messed that way. But when he has a pull up on, he would rather go number 1 in his pull-up than go potty (which he would about 80% of the time if in underwear). So frustrating! All of the comments from family who think I’m giving up! I just don’t know what to do. I know it will eventually happen, but it’s been a tough road.
My first one ended up not training until age 4. It will be ok! (This was a guest post.) I remember thinking it wouldn’t even happen either, but she is now 6 1/2 and in kindergarten and doing fine!
Could you please share how your eldest ended up potty training?
This sounds like my grandson. He will be 4 in July. He ever pees I his undies , but refuses togo#2 in the potty. He can’t stand to have even a mark in his underwear. He wears pull ups at night and does not like to have one on during the day. We have tried everything we can think of to encourage him to poop in the potty. He just isn’t having it.
Hey TandBmommy! Your story is IDENTICAL to mine! I have yet to find someone that understands. My son will be 4 in November and is still have 2-4 poo accidents in a day. How is your son doing now? Do you have any advice?!
I needed to read this. My first two are boys. With my eldest, potty training wasn’t successful until almost 3. So when my second son came I read books about early training, especially since I baby #3 on the way I didn’t want two in diapers. He did well! Mostly trained in several days. So when my third came and was a girl I thought “she’s a girl AND she’ll be in cloth diapers, both factors will make her potty train super easy and fast!” She’s turned out to be more strong headed than my first. At 2½ she refuses to even pee in a toilet and has outgrown her cloth diapers so has to use disposables. Now #4 is around the corner and I’m just praying for the patience to handle her and a newborn at the same time. If she potty trains after the baby is born, then she’ll likely have to do it herself because I feel I’ll be too preoccupied to focus on her training. Lord, help me!
There was a short period when I had all 3 in diapers…this too shall pass! Congrats on the new baby!
My first 2 kids trained very easily, including the strong willed child. He wanted to be like his older sibling. Number 3, very easy going kid, cared nothing about being potty trained. He had a slot in a preschool with a waiting list and had to be potty trained. I tried all the tricks I knew but each time went back to diapers. We went camping the weekend before school started and I threw the potty chair in the car as an after thought. He got the potty chair out on Saturday, took his diaper off and by the time we left on Sunday, he was completely trained. He just wasn’t ready, until he was. Number 4, we let him tell us when he was ready. Much less stress on everyone.
I ended up letting my 2nd one train herself, and she did–at 3 years and 4 months. It was so much easier on us all! Our 3rd is a young 2 and in the 2-year-old preschool…the school is letting her be in the 2s class again next year since she won’t be 3 until August, and that means she can stay in diapers until she is good and ready to train herself. Yay!
Thank you for this post. I needed this today. My almost 3 year old daughter was showing all the signs of being ready to potty train before Christmas but it just was not the right time for us to start as we had so many travel plans over Christmas so we agreed her and I that we would start when we longer had any diapers. Well that was the hardest week of my life. We put her in undies and all the previous positive signs were nowhere to be found. She had maybe 1 pee on the potty a day if I caught her before she peed the rest were accidents. It was so hard. She was so stubborn and refused to do anything. At the end of the week I was an emotional wreck and I told my husband I couldnt do it and drove into town to buy diapers. Funny thing is my happy girl is back and will pee on the real toilet when we are places. So what if it takes a little longer. This is so less stressful for both of us and we celebrate every single success she has.
Yes–celebrate that single success! I ended up letting my 2nd child train herself. It was “late” at 3 years and 4 months, but it was SO stress-free for me! My 3rd is now 2 1/2, and I am hoping to let her train herself as well!
You will NOT be packing diapers for college! My kids are now both adults, and were both late training because (as our dr. put it) “this is a battle of wills that you will NOT win!” Let them show you when they’re ready!
How I wish I had found this post when I was trying to potty train my middle son!
However it still seems a relevant, important reminder for me whilst I am trying to convince my youngest that undies are best dry – he doesn’t care.
I must commend the author as well as to how well she? has written this article it is so well written and so encouraging that as I sit here reading it I can feel the heart she put into it, you can feel the support.
I’sm so glad you were encouraged!
I’m helping raise my grandson, and I swear I don’t remember either of my kids being so difficult to train…I had setbacks with my oldest, but my second was a breeze (boy first girl second). GS is finally doing well with staying dry, but now we have to deal with number two…he’s not real consistent with when he goes, so that makes it harder to deal with…
That does make it harder to deal with!!
We tried several times with my second daughter before it worked. I agree, they have to want to go potty! All my children are strong-willed, and that’s a good thing! Harder on me, but good for them. She finally wanted to wear her Hello Kitty underwear and be a big girl and not get diaper rash. My third daughter is turning 2 this week and shows no interest in potty training yet so we’re not pushing it. As much as I would love to have all my kids out out diapers, I’m not going to push it and create a big battle of wills.
Thanks for sharing your story, Sara! I totally agree with you!
Im glad I came across this post I’ve felt like I’ve been alone with the same situation. My son turned 3 in November he has been wearing underwear for about 6 months or so I have no problem getting him to pee in the potty but he wants nothing to do with pooping he knows when he has to go he will come to me and say mommy I have to poop I want a pull-up or just go get one himself and put it on I clean him up after he’s done and he puts his underwear back on . His Dr at his 3 year check up also said he was very stubborn just let it go he will go on the potty when he’s ready so I left it go for months . I was stocked up on pull ups but I’ve recently come to the end of the last pack I decided I didn’t want to buy anymore he knows what he’s doing and most mornings he’s dry so I figured it was time to get rid of them at night as well. He’s very big on Santa clause right now so I told him Santa said he was a big boy and no longer needed pull-ups so he took his last couple for another little boy . He wasn’t having it I would make him sit and sit a sit he would cry and cry and cry scream throw a fit he would get off the potty and poop right in front of it or poop in his underwear I was getting so frustrated and upset . I had to take everything I’ve been trying to do and give in last night and let him have a pull-up because it was the 3rd day he didn’t poop he was holding it and I don’t want any other major issues did I do the right thing??? Should I just suck it up and buy more pull-ups and continue to let him use them till he’s ready to poop in the potty ?? Will he ever be ready to poop in the potty lol I’m very frustrated and he knows it help what do I do
Jen, if this is any encouragement to you: My firstborn didn’t potty train until she was 4–when she started preschool. Ever since then, I just let my girls (I have all girls) take the lead on training. If he were my son, I would keep him in pull-ups until he was ready.
Thank you so much for this really puts things in perspective for me I have four girls three were dry by a year and a half but the youngest is already that age and is showing no signs of being ready to start so it looks like I am just going to have to wait it out till she is ready because strong willed she is
I’m glad this encouraged you!
one stressed out mom of 3
OH MY thank you soooo much! my 3 year (4 in july) old is STILL not trained…. but she was #2 trained at 18 months of her own free will…. yea figure that one out…. this child is VERY strong willed! so much so that “your not in charge of me” has been said. THANK YOU for your encouraging words…. having 3 in diapers is SO not fun, thankfully we use cloth so it is cheaper but just today younger sibling came to me told me that he needed to use the toilet…. we were to late but really? he is 17 months, yet NOT strong willed! I was in tears reading this! Thanks again!
So glad you were encouraged!
I read this paragraph fully on the topic of the
resemblance of newest and preceding technologies,
it’s amazing article.
thank you so much for this…I have been struggling for many months trying to get my almost 3y/o daughter potty trained…I feel like a complete failure most days. Thank you so much for this❤️
Thank you for this post! I know that there are people out there going through the same thing. That is what I am going through with my almost 4 year old daughter. She is in undies because she wants to but she can have up to 5 accidents a day. She gets so busy playing that she really does not care whether she makes it to the potty. We have tried everything but she still does it. I am at my wits end and just want to give up and when she is ready she will.
Oh boy. I’m one of those moms. My 3rd child will be 4 next month and he freaks out every time I try to make him poo in the potty and won’t let me change his dirty diaper until HE is ready for me to. He also has lots of pee accidents even though I tell him it’s time to go pee pee again. I have people saying “He’s still in diapers?” and “He’s not potty trained yet?” And yes, I’ve had people tell me how all of their children trained at 2 years old. And I’ll tell MYSELF that he’ll be trained before he goes to kindergarten (I homeschool too). I’m glad I’m not the only one who is going/has gone through this!
My son with SPD potty trained at 4, and began to have bowel movements in the toilet at age 5. My typically developing boy potty trained at 3 years 4 months. I agree they have to be both physically ready, they have to be emotionally ready as well! My boys finally were motivated by preschool. I heard tons of things about how I should be potty training my sons, from people who had children who potty trained easily 🙁
I don’t know how to thank you for this post. My just-turned-four-year-old daughter has no interest in pooping in the potty, and I alternate between beating myself up over this fact and accepting that she’s just not ready for this part of the process. Thank you, thank you, thank you for letting me know I am not alone in this struggle.
I needed this today. Thanks.
<3 Keep your chin up, Mama, and give yourself lots of grace!
I’m in this boat with my boy who will be your in June. In his case though, staying dry is not an issue. But he will not do number two on the potty. I am taking the same approach as the author, after much the same trial and error. He really wants to go to school like his big sister, and frequently asks. My answer is always a calm, cheerful: “When you decide you’re ready to put your poop in the potty, you can go.” Little brother, not quite two, is showing signs of readiness, so perhaps I’ll help him with potty learning while big brother is waiting to decide he’s ready.
Thank you for this. I feel redeemed that I allowed my son to take his time. He is 4 1/2 and we just succesfully potty trained him a few weeks ago. ?
Oh I’m so glad you were encouraged by this post, Kate!! And a HUGE congrats on his recent potty training success! Good job, Mama!!
Oh this has really made me feel better! I have been a mom now for almost 8 years, and I have never had a break from nappies! My eldest son was just over 3 when I trained him and by then I already had my next son. I trained him at 2 and a half but I had my daughter by then. I have always had an over lap and now coming to her, who is 3 next month I am struggling! She is having none of it! She is so stubborn and Strong minded I can’t reason with her because her speech is delayed. I am not enjoying people’s “advice” as its rarely helpful and am just really struggling with her. I will 100% have to wait until she is ready. There’s no other option xx
Thank you so much for posting. My boy will 4 this November. He’s wears underwear until he needs to go poo, and even takes himself to pee and washes his own hands afterwards! He just won’t number 2 on the toilet, and I began to think it was me. Thank you for posting this.
Thank you! Thank you! I have a son who will be 3 in 2 weeks and have been struggling with consistency and having him accept the potty. He will often throw a fit if I suggest him using the potty or trying. So I’ve backed off. But seems like many of the ‘experienced parents’ want to tell you how it can be done and basically elude to the fact that you aren’t doing it right. It really does make you feel horrible. I appreciated the part where you talked about how when people talk about their easy experience when you are sharing a difficult experience. It is not helpful but defeating! So thank you for this post! Makes me glad to know I’m not alone in this potty training battle! 🙂
My daughter will be 5 in December, and I am at my wit’s end. She will have streaks where she does really well, and then we will have 2-3 weeks where she is having multiple accidents each day. It is always pee. She just CANNOT do it without me reminding her. Luckily she almost never has #2 accidents, nor does she wet the bed at night.
I deal with a lot of guilt over it. I try to remind myself that it’s not a reflection of my poor parenting, or a reflection on her intelligence. But it’s hard to not feel that way when she excels at so many other things.
I am a mother of a 4 year old boy, 3 year old boy and 22 month daughter, and neither of my boys will potty train, I have tried everything my family and my in-laws have called me a failure as a mother because my kids aren’t potty trained, saying that if I was a better mother, if I actually cared about my kids, they would be potty trained! I have for the last week, cried most days because I feel devastated that I am the reason my kids aren’t potty trained, why they are missing out of Sports, or School, I have tried every thing I can think of. Literally, spent 100’s if not more on present, and candys and stickers, and toilets and they will not do it for the live of me! I am feeling horrible, and extremely worthless that I can’t potty train my children. I need help, yet my husband is Active Navy and gone most of the year, and I live 18 hours form my family and 33 hours from my in- laws and most of my friends, just keep saying it will happen, with no advice! Please if anyone has any help please! Please help!
I am another reader here, and I don’t know when you wrote this, but I’m reading this and I am praying for you to be encouraged. I can’t imagine how tough it must be to do this on your own like you have. I don’t know your whole situation, but you keep your chin up and ask God to see you through and trust in Him and Him alone. You can only do so much given your situation and you can politely tell those who are criticizing you to pray for you or find some way to help instead of being negative. You seem to be in survival mode and sometimes that’s where God allows us to be so that we must learn to lean on Him. May the LORD bless you and keep you, and may you feel His peace upon you and your family as you try to raise your children in His truth and by His Word.
Very encouraging! Our daughter will turn 3 just a few weeks after our second is born. I’d been hoping to get her potty trained but it hasn’t worked out. With baby due any day I’m not sure when will be the right time but it’s definitely discouraging. So thanks for your support and encouragement in this journey!
I’m so glad you were encouraged and a huge congrats on the new baby!
This post was a Godsend. I have been struggling to get my 3 year old son potty trained for 6 months now. Every time I try, he fights it, has accidents and we both get frustrated. I’ve been so discouraged and this post brought me the comfort and reassurance I’ve been searching for. Thank you for sharing your experience! It meant so much to this tired mama’s heart!
I’m so glad you were encouraged!
Thank you for this post and this a common problem each and every parents are facing in their home. We are about to train our kids but it hasn’t worked out but we cant blame on the kids instead we have to try some other option. This post is really encouraging us and it will definitely help us!
