  • Not sure if you tried this already. I had a sticker chart and when the boys peed they got a sticker. After 10 stickers they could go to the store and get a small gift. Usually we went to the dollar store. My sister uses M & Ms. Every time her dd goes she gets 1 M & M. Not sure about this either. Could it be an attention thing. I know with 3 kids it is hard to give them each their own attention and maybe it is his way of getting you to spend time with him. Just a thought. Good Luck

  • I had my son stand over the toilet and pee in a clear plastic jar, and made a game of it to see how much he could get in the jar. It worked like a charm. Eventually, like all games they tire of it and he just went to the toilet like a big boy.

  • why do people push potty training? Fact most boys will daytime PT (urinate) by 3, but not fully PT until right b4 kindergarten. So encourage but don't push, it causes rebellion and low self-esteem(you're not happy with me syndrom)
