  • My mom potty trained my brothers and some of the kids she baby sat by putting cheerios in the toilet and told them that it was like a game to sink the cheerios with the pee. Don't know if you want to train them to stand, but that is about all I got! Besides putting "big boy" underwear on him so he feels the wetness of his pee

  • First off, if he's not ready to potty train it's not gonna work. My 3 yr old son did the exact samething and I told him that he wasn't gonna get to go to school next year w/ his brother and then one day he came to me and said mommy I wanna go to school next year. I told him that the only way he could go is if he used the potty like a big boy. Find something he likes and tell him that the only way he's gonna get it is if he uses the potty like a big boy. Like w/ my little boy he wants to go to school, go to his mama'a, and join karate w/ him brother but I told him that he had to start using the potty or he couldn't do those things. It took about 2 weeks and he's now potty trained and will be doing all those things he wanted to do b/c he showed me that he was a big boy.

  • I have two potty chairs, one in the corner of the living room because we can't always make it to the bathroom. I ask him if he has to go pee-pee and he runs to his potty and he sits down and goes every time. When I go to the bathroom, I tell him "Lets go pee-pee" and he runs in there and I have him go first, after he goes he thrown toys into the tub while I go. It is a pretty good routine and he is used to saying "pee pee bye" when he sees me rinse out his potty. We'll be getting big boy pants soon!
