  • let the child see you dump poo out of diaper into toilet.I put a full length mirror in front of potty.And of course cherry lifesavers!Once you can make the child understand that doodie goes in there because it is bad,child will pick up on it .I made a big deal out of showing mine why it goes there and when to go.I also (if girl) took daughter to buy big girl panties and told her we never doodie in our big girl panties.I know it seems like sometimes they will never get ti but they do its that old patience thing .Hang in there!Never get mad ,and praise praise husband used to tell me you act as if thats the best thing they could ever do ,and it worked.praise goes a long way in potty trianing,there is also alot of good story books to read with your child.
