My son is 3, today I am making my 4th attempt at potty training him in the past year. Whenever I have tried in the past, we have taken 3-4 days of going on the potty every half hour. Today, I am going to try once every hour. *I believe he is ready. He gets diapers for me and tells me to change him. He doesn't pee during the night. * He was never gone on the potty yet. Usually, he would spend a long period of time on the toilet and then get off, only to pee on the floor. He loves to help me clean it up, I only wish he loved actually voiding where he is supposed to. When I talk about using the potty, he tells me "no, i want diapers". But, like I said, he is 3, and needs to be using the potty. So, we have a potty chart with stickers for each time he goes and I'm willing to give him any reward desired. Do you have any advice? I offer alot of positive encouragement. I have already purchased big boy underwear.Answer Question

My husband actually trained our son. He used a tactic that I did not agree with but it worked. He told our son that he had to use the big toilet (with his training seat-he still uses it) and not got in his Pull-Up, if he went to the big toilet he would get chocolate. He did threat for about a month and we slowly weened him off the chocolate and he goes no problem. Now we are training him to ease off on the toilet tissue, he'll put the whole roll in the toilet if we're not watching him.
Good Luck, and be patient
