DON'T SWEAT IT, AS HE WILL TRAIN HIMSELF WHEN HE'S CONVINCED IT'S PART OF BEING GROWN UP. MAKE SURE HE CAN SEE YOU AND OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS USING THE TOILET AND EVERY TIME MAKE THE COMMENT THAT "WHEN YOU'RE A GROWN UP BOY. YOU WILL USE THE TOILET, TOO." LET OTHER CHILDREN QUESTION WHY HE IS STILL USING PULL UPS. IF POSSIBLE, TAKE HIM TO PLAY GROUPS WITH CHILDREN HIS AGE THAT ARE TOILET TRAINED. IN OTHER WORDS, LET SOCIETY PRESSURE HIM INTO BECOMING TRAINED, AND KEEP YOURSELF OUT OF IT. REMEMBER THAT HE IS HE ONLY ONE IN CONTROL OF HIS BODILY FUNCTIONS AND DON'T LET IT BECOME A POWER STRUGGLE WITH YOU.
