I just potty trained my 3 yr old son, not easy! they're so used to the diaper that you have to do it smoothly as possible. stop drinks 1-1.5 hrs before bed. ask him if he has to go and go with him if he does. getting him to pee standing is a little tricky but not impossible! he might poo in his underwear for a little while but soon will end once he's comfortable going to the bathroom. explain that he's a big boy now and that diapers are for babies[sounds harsh, but i found it beneficial]. every time he goes praise him[that's my big boy, ect, maybe stickers or a prize]. i'm a single mother of 4 and got my son to pee standing, i call him my lil man now. you have to let him take the lead and just follow[easier said than done i know]. when we don't scream or berate them for accidents they progress more so. i think they also like the one on one durring potty training and therefore is necassary to walk them through the process.
