So my 2 1/2 year old Son is ready to be potty trained. He takes off his own diapers and pees on the floor ALL the time (I'm sick of it!). So we told him that after Easter we were saying Bye-bye Isacc's diapers,. He was so excited! In the morning I put him in underwear and we set a timer for 30minutes (so he knows when to go potty) and he'll go in and sit on the potty and do NOTHING, then not 5 minutes later he'll pee on the floor! UGH! I've tried everything I know to do. We have a sticker chart, we give candy, we praise his good job (when it goes in the potty). We don't make a huge deal about the accidents (we tell him next time he should try and make it in the potty and then he has to help us clean it up). Anyone have any good ideas for potty training a boy???My mom has 6 girls and 1 boy and keeps telling me it was so much harder and my friend that has a boy took months to potty train him, I don't want it to take months...

You can buy these little tablets to put in the potty for him to aim at. They look like colored Styrofoam peanuts and they dissolve. Or you could use fruit loops. Also you can get those cleaning tablets you put in the tank that turn the water blue and tell him pee is magic and it turns the water green. First thing in the am. put him on the potty and don't let him up till he pees. If he starts to whine, play some music or play peek a boo. Keep him occupied. Put him on a 'sippy scedual'. Give him the same amount of drink at the same times every day and pay attention to when he pees. Then put him on the potty at those times.

I have a little girl I hear it's easier to train girls, but Oh My Goodness it was rough... I let my daughter go with no undies for a month, she pee'ed on the floor for about a week. Then she got the hang of it... The trouble came when we tried to get her to wear undies. It just took time and alot of accidents... 2 months before she turned 3 she is fully potty trained... Hang in there momma!!!! He will get there...
