Hi, I'm just on here also looking for help as I've been trying to potty train my son for a year now. He will also hold onto his for hours until I'm not there or I put a nappy on him and he'll either pee on the floor or wait for a nappy. He just won't go on the potty or the toilet. I'm sorry I can't offer advice, maybe you're having some success now are you???

Have you tried sticker charts or something similar , i'm not above a bit of bribery if it works and we've had sticker charts where if they got so many stickers they got to choose a small toy, or book or pack of crayons or similar from a box i had , between that and lots of praise and encouragement when they did go it always worked for mine (and one of my boys would go and hide when he needed the toilet so he didn't have to use it at first but the sticker chart worked a treat ) With my boys they preferred to stand whilst peeing too so having a step for the toilet helped , good luck xx
