    Well I work with children in the preschool room of a nursery, and in practice, it's quite rare to come across a 3-year-old who is still in nappies. Those that are usually (but not always) have physical or learning difficulties.

    A lot of children still have accidents sometimes, but the vast, vast majority of 3-year-olds are in knickers/pants.

    Sometimes you just have to go for it. A child might be ready to toilet train, but is still using their nappy as they are lazy and just can't be bothered to make the effort, especially since the nappy absorbs most of it so they don't really feel it. Put them in knickers/pants for a day and they soon realise they don't like the feeling of being wet/soiled and they train pretty quickly.
    Thanks a lot for the advice. Their is still little progress I'm afraid.
