  • Thanks.. well for the most of my day i am in class. Do you think it will be a good idea for his dad to bring him into the bathroom with him just so that he will get the idea?

  • If you have a man in his life, let him start the show. I let my little boy pee outside and that did the trick.

  • Any time anyone goes tot he bathroom let him go with you. He will see what you are doing. He may start to imitate you. My daughter has been going into the bathroom with us since she could crawl. She occasionally tries to stand and pee in the toilet like her brothers do. She is 18 months old and has been asking to be changed for about 2 months and has been using the potty on and off for about a month. We aren't anywhere ready to get rid of the diapers yet, but she is doing great.

  • My little boy showed no interest in the potty until I got him the Potty time With Elmo DVD. He got a huge kick out of it. We went through a phase where he wanted to sit on the potty, but then he just quit. Im going to give it a little more time and try again. Its a process, eventually he will get it.
