Almost 5 and no interest in potty training.

Our son is almost 5 years old and has absolutely no interest in using the toilet. Normally, he is wonderful at imitation, but the farthest we can get him is to stand in front of toilet, pants down and pretend to pee into it. I'm going to try this food coloring trick next and have his dad demonstrate (red food coloring in the water and a successful pee makes it orange). This little trick just might be one way to initiate things for him....but who knows, I am just throwing everything at the wall and waiting to see what sticks. I'm glad to have found this website, I now know it is his SPD that is at fault and I can quit beating myself up over it and there would be some justification in telling my mother-in-law to keep it to herself, if I ever so chose to ; )...
