  • I used M&Ms for a few days. It's hard, it can't be something big because they go like 20 times a day in the beginning.

  • Praise. Going to the potty is something you are supposed to do, I didn't want to give him toys and junk every time he went.

  • Lots of praise, hugs and just how proud you are of them when they go. They seem to thrive on the good praise so that's always what I did. Seemed to work, I got 3 trained with no candy involved. If it's a little boy, eventually I sent him in to go with Daddy, what better example than that.Good luck, it can be a very trying time.
