i let my kids run around with nothing but a shirt on ( we dont have carpet so its easy to clean up accidents.) and time it in the beginning then after that i look for cues. when they do go i tell them what a good job they did and get all excited.
I stopped using pull-ups. They would absorb the wetness and my boys never felt it but when I put underwear on them it was an instant I need to go to the bathroom after peeing on their self a couple times. I tried to stay home too so they would always have a bathroom on hand when needed.
