How long do I keep rewarding him

My son just turned 3 in July, at that point hge peed on the potty but refused to poop, I tried everything under the sun and was frustrated. I noticed one day how much he just loved playing xbox with daddy, so I thought hmm I can turn this into a bribe. It took one full day to get my son completely potty trained, we are now on day 4 of him going in and going poop on his own. He now knows pop on the potty means xbox play. My question is how long do I keep up the rewarding ?

  • ideally you would want to fade out the reward. how long does he play after each poop? lesseng the time by a minute or a few minutes every week or a couple weeks. (just depending on how he does.) eventually you could do every other time he poops, then every third time, etc. hope that helped! :)
