  • Give it a rest for awhile. He is still pretty young so I wouldn't push it. Or try a potty rather than the toilet.

  • I'm not sure what to try I just say to keep at it boys are harder to train, but if he was doing good until he fell in the toilet then it probably scared him and he is afraid of it happeniing again.

  • He's afraid and that's understandable. Can you get a different seat adaptor or a little potty for him to use instead? The change may make him more comfortable, especially if you use a little potty.

  • My sister used her own method. She has a large fenced backyard, so she would tell her son to go pee-pee on the bugs. He thought it was so funny, so he would. Then after a couple weeks doing that she took a marker and drew bugs in his toilet and told him to pee on them. After a little while the bugs washed off and he was still peeing in the potty. Hope this helps.
