  • I was on the same boat as you a week ago. My 3 yr old wasn't trained yet. All I did was put her on the potty every 30 minutes and I also kept her in only her underwear. I created a sticker chart. Anytime she goes in the big girl potty she gets a sticker. After she gets X amount of stickers she will get a prize. I just picked up party favors from the dollar store. It's week two she hardly has accidents.

  • Put him in underwear only. Take him every 1/2 hour to start. If he goes, great, if not, next time. He'll have some accidents, but stick to the underwear. Stay home for 3 days and concentrate on this. You'll see, by day 2 he'll get it, by day 3 he'll be trained. He can stand if it's easier for him. It was easier for my boys. My oldest son just turned 3 when I did this. My younger 2 were closer to 3 1/2. Good luck!
