I don't like the giving candy idea. I was thinking of a sticker chart but I don't know if that would work or not. My son is two and a half and we've started to sit him on the potty. He's gone twice but he sits on it throughout the day. Has this been effective for anyone?Answer Question

I did a potty dance. It's funny and kids like it. If you give "rewards" then they will learn that they need external motivation. I always tried to foster internal motivation. Do the right thing because it's the right thing, not because you will be rewarded. My kids are now adults and it worked.
You can foster certain values in you kids like internal motivation but you can't do too many, according to psychologists. My kids aren't perfect. They aren't motivated to make a lot of money. Money isn't that important to me. That may have been a mistake.
I do the potty dance when I potty train dogs and it works for them too!

There a lot of different ways to do a chart. I used the train one at this website: http://www.childavenue.com/pages/family_corner_pages/printables.html It worked for us because I gave a sticker for each successful potty visit rather than one sticker a day.
