It just takes patience. I had my three yr. old son watch dad go potty.Read him a book about going potty ( and pointed out that I could put stickers on it when he went), let him decorate the potty chair with stickers, explained to him that's where he goes potty like a big boy, ect.We even did a little happy dance after he went. Oh, he loves that. Overpraise him when he does go. At first my son would just sit on there on not go. Eventually there was times when he went and now he's on day four of pooping in the potty. I do pay attention to the cues( grunting or squatting) I then ask do u have to go potty and he goes.Enthusiasm works in my house. He will eventually get it. You can message me.
