My son (going on 3) is at a point where we are starting to get him ready to use the big boy potty. He was off to a great start! Anytime we told him we should try to go he was on the toliet and peeing in no time and everyonce in a bluemoon he would even tell us he had to go. We began by rewarding him with one gummy bear or m&m every time he would go. This seemed to be working great!
All of a sudden he has stopped. He no longer wants to go, candy and toys don't help. We bought him real underware and he was soooo excited, however he still pee'd in them; which led to him peeing all over the furniture. I have no idea where to go from here... he's still in the pullup's (we don't want to backtrack) but we're out of ideas. Please... anything you have :-)

I think I made it too big of a deal when I trained my son. If I had to do it over again, I would relax. I guess I was anxious to get him out of diapers. Reading books about it might be helpful because they explain in a way a child can understand. http://www.cjkidz.com/parentsgrandparentsteachers.html
