  • With my 2 boys i started by introducing them to the potty by identifying when they were going number 2 and setting them on the potty with their diaper and all & letting them do their business. After they're acquainted i start taking the diaper off. they can also make faces when they are going pee they kinda just stand their with this blank stare. but thats how i got started.

  • i have a daughter but w/ boys i heard putting a few cheerios in the toilet and having them aim and hit them is a catchy game...??

  • Introduce the child to the potty...let them sit on it with a diaper or pull up on and get use to that for a few days then start taking them to use the potty after about a week and ask them every thirty to forty-five min if they need to go potty and even if they say no take them to try anyway and eventually they will potty in their toilet them give them a treat for using the potty (something they don't get often like a little piece of candy like one m&m)
