  • I started by flushing the poop out of his diaper into the toilet. He thought that was neat and wanted to know where the poop went. Then I started a reward chart. Going on the toilet got him a snack and he was sold! Now if you can tell me how to get him to potty, I will be set! lol

  • I held her there when I knew that she had to go. She screamed because I held her down and then she pooped and it was all better.

  • I suppose you will have to ask my babysitter who trained both my girls. I was working two full time jobs...

  • when he is sitting on the potty i squeeze his hand to "help him" squeeze it out. I always let him look at it afterwards and also let him flush the potty.
