Why won't my son go to the potty at home?

At school he pees for his teacher but at home, he just sits there.

Usually, potty training also progresses more slowly in one setting than another.  Encourage your son's potty training by letting him know you're interested in his progress at school. But let him decide his own pace, which is the best way to ensure that potty training goes more smoothly.  It's the fate of all parents that our children show their true selves to us. This means they work harder outside the home and "perform" best for their teachers and babysitters, but they "let it all hang out" with their parents.
