  • I just finished potty training my 3 year old dd. One thing I did was to let her come potty with me and explain to her what I was doing and why? If your child is a boy maybe talk to Dad or SO and see if they are willing to try that....you can also get books or videos that are age appropriate that help spark interest.

  • I have a 3 year old boy and he was pretty hard. I tried I thought was everything but then a friend said to try candy... everytime he went potty he got 1 peice of candy and when he pooped he got 2 peices of candy. He is now potty trainned but when he does have an accident in his big boy underwear I actually have to take something away that he really likes...
