Potty Training Problems

I am having major problems potty training my son, he is 3 (4 in March). I have tried everything I know how to; he has a big brother and I thought maybe if he saw him doing it he would be more interested. He wears big boy underwear sometimes and he just pees or poops in them and doesn't mind the wet, gross feeling. I have tried rewarding him, putting the potty chair in the living room, the potty chair even plays music...nothing is working. Please help!!!!

Accidents at Night

My three-yr-old is fully potty trained; however, she still has accidents at night. We've tried just letting her wet the bed thinking that the discomfort would wake her up. Nothing doing--she sleeps right through it. We've also tried waking her up at midnight or so to go potty. Sometimes that works, and sometimes it doesn't. We limit her intake of liquids before bedtime, but sometimes even that's not enough. Any suggestions? I'm afraid that if we continue with pull-ups at night, we'll be furthering a bedwetting habit that will last a...

Keeping a Diaper On

Anybody have any ideas as to how I can get my 16 month old to keep his diaper on? The past couple of days he's been taking his diaper off and walking around bottomless. Tonight he actually peed on the floor. I know he is much too young to begin potty training and just likes to play with the velcro stuff but I have no idea how to get him to keep his diaper on...help.

Potty Training at Daycare

I do daycare at my home, anyway one of the kids that I care for is potty trained EVERY where else but at my house. I am so frustrated!!

Potty Training Twins

My boy/girl twins are 21/2, and I have been unsucessful thus far. I was wondering, what is the best approach to potty train twins. Should I do both of them at the same time? Should I try to potty train my daughter first? I really need to have them somewhat potty trained by the end of August. I will be in nursing school full-time, and the preschools in my area require kids to be potty trained. Thanks for any help!
