I started my son by putting him on the potty when he first woke up, I would give him a few minutes to make and if he did he got 3 M&M's. Eventually, he learned that if he made in the potty he would get a reward. We did go through a stubborn period and that's when I started taking cheerios or a little cracker and put it in the potty and told him to pee on it. Oh, he loved that, typical boy lol. He also loved making "bubbles" in the potty. When we decided to go full force with potty training we did not use pull-ups bc kids often use those as a crutch and it makes potty training so much harder. When he's ready go out and buy 3-4 packs of underwear and be prepared to do a lot of laundry, but it will work. He won't like being wet and he will learn that every time he goes in his undies he will feel uncomfy. Good luck!
