Potty training help

Ok. Here is the deal. David will say he has to pee on the potty if he has his diaper on but if I put him in undies he pees right through and does not care. He goes in the morning, before bed and when we get home from the sitter. But yesterday tried to put him in undies, he wanted nothing to do w it. Also the sitter said he shows no interest at daycare but she also will not help either. Not sure what to say to her. I have tried to talk to her about it and she wont budge. She said oh he will be trained soon but then wont help when he is there. Do you think he is ready or what should I do? Also we are thinking of leaving her if she keeps this up. She also has the tv on constantly another reason. Not just the pt. But it is annoying. Also what should I say to her? I will have dh also once he goes back to work once he is better.

Honestly I wouldn't rush him. He's still young to be PT, especially for a boy. On average boys are fully PT around 38 months. If you get him PT before then great, wonderful!! But if you push and he's not ready he will turn it into a power struggle. There is a lot involved with PT, from learning to what his body is telling him, to the physical part, etc.. Relax and go with the flow... I know easier said than done.

I feel like a daycare person (in home or in center) should support whatever parents are doing at home. I personally think that if we were not on the same page as our daycare that I would have to consider a new one... I know its a tough decision. GL!

My initial thought was that he was too young also, but if he's already poop trained that it sounds like he's ready (and totally jealous that he's doing so well!). I know that if my boys were doing that well at his age, my babysitter would have totally worked on it because it's easier for her than changing pullups. It would be one thing if he wasn't taking to it, but that's not the case and you don't want him to lose momentum. It sounds like standing up is the key to success, just make sure to work with him on holding his penis down and not waiting too long to go.
