here's what we did. We picked a time each day to put him on the potty. We used right before bath time as it was highly likely he woudl have to go (i.e. after dinner). If he gave us a hard time, we just tried again the next night. When we got to the point where he would readily sit and usually successfully pee, we moved on to potty training. Since the weather is nice, we spent two days mostly playing out in the backyard in just a shirt with the potty right near by. I put him on every 45 minutes or so. I fhe peed, we made a big deal. If he didn't, we tried again in 10 or 15 minutes. Then kept trying every 10 until he either peed or had an accident. Then we just restarted the process. In the house, we set a timer so we wouldn't forget to put him on. After 2 days, we went to underwear and did the same thing. As he got the idea, we increased the time between potty checks.. We also stayed home a few days to focus on it.
