  • If she has a favorite candy, your sister can let your neice see her put it on the fridge and if she asks for it she has to tell her something like... you can have one everytime you go potty... and when she goes potty let her have one... it also works with toys. She can allow her to play with the toy for a short period after she uses the potty or while she is on the potty.

  • Awarding her is the best way, You have to make sure they know when they go to the pody they get a reward, so its more fun and doesnt seem like a chore.
    my friend used a big glass jar filled with assorted small candy's.
    It works like a charm.
