What did you do to get your child started?

My Daughter was 14 months when she was potty trained. And My son, Is now 2.5!

  • We would take poopy diapers and together roll he poop into the tiolet and say "bye bye poopy" and let him flush. This got him interesed in doing it for real after awhile. Boys take longer to potty train anyways.

  • well first of all i really wouldn't worry too much. i mean i can pretty much promise that he will not go to kindergarten n a Boys are harder than girls in my opinion. couple tips are maybe let him potty on a cherrio or froot loop so he can aim at it and sink it! Also maybe give him a m&m or another piece of motivation every time he pottys. A sticker chart maybe. Also keep in mind if he is a tad bit stubborn or even embarrassed the bigger deal yopu make of it the more he will resist! GL!
