I was always told use treats for rewards, use pull-ups and so on. I got a tip from a friend to just get rid of all of the diapers. My son cried. I sat him on the potty, tears and all, and set the timer to 10 minutes. Then when it went off I sat him there again. He cried again, yet tried. Still upset. Then when the timer went off the third time he jumped up and ran into the bathroom, sat and went. All on his own! Now the timer is set at every 25 minutes only 4 hours into potty training, no accidents, no praise and he automatically goes when the timer goes off. How this will wrk outside the house is what I am worried about! Do I bring an egg timer???
