  • Praise him whenever he does, but don't punish him for accidents.

  • Do not loose your temper. Do not force him...he will get it. Stay consistent. He wont go on the potty every time. Bring him to the potty every 2 hours, after he drinks, and after he eats. :)

  • When I take him potty and he does go I praise him and he claps and says "YAY" because thats what I normally say. And he normally does well. But he has his days lol

  • Have patience & keep trying, obviously he likes it. Perhaps sometimes he is not as interested

  • You both are doing great! Let him know he is doing great and it takes time.
