Why do some 4 and 5 year olds with no disabilities struggle with potty training?

    They might have a very weak bladder.

    Because they have just stopped using diapers very recently and are not used to the potty.

    Because sometimes the bladder and hormones haven't caught up yet.  If the bladder isn't mature and the correct hormones aren't produced, nothing you can do to push it.  If a child is 5 and still isn't consistently using the bathroom, a full evaluation would be in order.

    If your child is in a resistant phase, is not ready to take on a new challenge, or does not yet feel the urge to behave “like other kids” in this way, you might take some extra time to prepare him mentally before starting the training process.

    Many possible issues.

    One common issue is inconsistent training.  This might be especially true for children of divorced or separated parents and the child spends time with each parent and the training isn't consistent between the two homes.

    Some children are also just stubborn and just don't want to use the toilet.  I have known children that would pee or poo in their pants because they didn't want to stop playing long enough to go to the toilet.
