My daughter and I are trying as hard as we can to help my grandson get the idea of how to use the potty, HE IS CLUELESS! He is 2 1/2 and sweet as can be. he will set on the potty and get up saying 'I peed" but nothing is in there ! He even looks so proud. I set him on the little potty about half an hour - hour after drinking and first its kicking, screaming,no not the potty, then he sits there and will tell me he peed but nothing zilch, finally I will let him up and don't you know then he pees or the other in the baby under pants eww , he don't want to mess up my potty chair. His sister is 3 1/2 and he sees that she uses it and that the potty chair has not consumed her yet! Me and my daughter are at our wits end and could use some ideas! I will take any clues on how to get this little booger out of diapers and into tidy whites!

This is not the battle to pick -- it will happen when he is ready. Lots of great advice on this board -- but ultimately, each child is an individual and will toilet train when they are ready. Hang in there it's not that he's "clueless" -- he's just not interested in potty training yet. Take a break from it, don't make a big deal ... and try again in a few months.
