My little guy will be ready for potty training soon and all I keep hearing is how hard is it to potty train boys. (Why do moms try to scare other moms with stuff like this anyway??) If it is harder, what makes it that way? Any tips?

Hey Twinklecats!  Welcome aboard.  I have 4 kids in all; 3 boys and 1 girl.  I think potty training actually depends on each individual child.  Kristen was definitely easier to train than Tyler and Riley, but Kolby was a breeze as well.

My kids were potty impaired, I thought they would attend high school in diapers. They both were fine.
