Im trying to potty my son, he got taken when he was little but, I got him home again :). When he was in foster care the foster mom would put him in pull ups like a diaper...so thats what he thinks pull-ups are...a diaper. But, when I put him in regular big boy underwear, he will pee on the potty without telling anyone he will just go and come out and say...I did it mommy! Now, he doesnt flush, so I can check to make sure he does. But, my question is that my boyfriend (who is an only child with no kids) said that when he has an accident in his underwear I should put him in a diaper. I disagree with that. Hes going to make mistakes, and I think putting him in a diaper is regressing. How can I potty train my son and what is the best method with out using pull-ups? I got those plastic training pants, but my son wont have anything to do with them...he said they r loud and stupid lol.
