potty time

My 2 year son knows when he needs to pee and he always stands up and holds it like hes a big boy when hes in the bath and has to pee but he wont pee in the potty. Ive tried giving him candy and stuff to use the potty but he still wont do it. Any ideas on what will get him to use the potty.

  • put cloth pants on him he will not like being wet. Then every 30 minutes take him to the potty have him stand and try to pee like daddy does. When daddies home let him take him to the potty. Maybe daddy can play a game like lets see who can pee more. Make it fun.

  • Don't ask or just wait for him to go. Decide it is time and let him know it is time to be a big boy and use the potty. Put him in underwear and take him to potty every 30 minutes and have him sit and try. Once that becomes routine, make him try every 45 minutes and keep it up. Be consistent and don't digress. I bet he will be fully trained in a week.

  • Maybe there's something about the potty he's uncomfortable with or maybe he doesn't understand it's only ok to pee in the potty. Try having him watch some potty training videos aimmed at kids or read him a potty training book.
