  • First I would back off a little, don't force him. When my kids were this age we did this. We took them shopping for underwear and stickers. Then I put a calendar up in the bathroom. Everytime they would go they got to put sticker on the calendar. after "X" amount of stickers they got a special treat like going for ice cream or having their favorite dinner.

    I would also put some books in the bath room so he has something to look at. I think the key is to make it fun and not get angry if he has an accident or fights you. Just say okay we will try again in a little bit.

    Good Luck!
