  • I just sat him on the toilet. At this moment he only pee-pee's in the potty. He refuses to go Ka-Ka in the potty. He will be 3 in September.

  • My first born, which he is 21 now...I could not get him potty trained on the big toilet or the little one for his age. I found at a garage sale a step-up that goes on the big toilet...it had giraffes as handles. WOW...did that do the trick. Couldn't keep him off of it...lol Good Luck.

  • We also bought a seat that goes on the big toilet and he just sat on that. Once he was fully trained I had daddy teach him the rest..lol. Good luck!

  • My mom always told me that one of the easiest ways is to have dad do it too. So your son can see what to do. If that is an uncomfortable method for you, then you can also put cherios in the toilet and ask him to aim for them while he pees. It almost becomes a game to them and they're more eager to use the bathroom.
