Toilet training. (Respond).
Start out by, for two weeks or so, checking your child every 30 minutes (more often if possible) to see if he is wet, and writing down in a diary whenever it occurs. At the end of two weeks, see if you can find a pattern of when he is most often wet, then sit him on the toilet just before those times. Be sure to give him lots of verbal praise when he is successful. After about a month, try to vary the times a little bit, by about 15 minutes or so. Timed toileting may not be independent toilet training, but it is still a big step forward. Good luck!
