Our two year old son is almost fully potty trained. He will use the potty for both pee and poop, and he has even taken a few naps (when we forgot to put on a diaper) and woken up dry. However, he is refusing to wear underwear. Currently we let him run around bottomless, because it's just him, my wife and myself living in our house. We want him to start wearing underwear, but he will fight it pretty intensely or the few times he's actually worn them will pee in them.

What are some methods my wife and I can use to teach him to wear underwear and to not potty in them?

    Has he seen you put on underwear? Does he understand that underwear is part of "grownup clothing"? – Stephie Aug 19 '16 at 21:47
  • Yes, and we ask him if he wants to wear underwear like daddy, and his reply is always no. – user123 Aug 19 '16 at 22:03
