  • Girl! I have been there! I have an autistic step son so it was unusually difficult.

    We kept little toys next to his potty in a basket, we offered him a sticker every time he sat on the potty, and if he used the potty he would get a dum dum sucker.

    Now about six months later (reminder he is autistic) he is potty trained and no longer requires all the bells and whistles.

    Good luck!

  • the only thing that worked with my son was to let him run around the house in underwear instead of a diaper. he went in his pants twice and didn't like the feeling when there was no diaper to absorb the wetness. then he started using the potty.

  • Depends on how ready he is to go on the potty. If he isn't ready I personally don't belive that you can make him go. He will train when his body tells him he is ready to learn.
