make it fun. You can have him sit on the potty (instead of standing up) and read a book with him on the pot 'till he goes. If he has any potty trained friends, have them over to spend the night (that helped my oldest). Use sticker on a "reward chart" I just found a picture of a toilet, printed it out, and put a sticker on the toilet every time s/he went potty in it. They loved picking out their stickers (got like 500 sticker for $1.00 at the dollar tree). If you do the 20 minute thing, make sure they're well hydrated so he actually has some potty to push out. You can sing songs, read books, color, tell stories, play patty cake etc . . . while he's on the pot. Maybe try getting one of the potty dolls too. Some kids respond well to that. Put him in underwear. Major on the fact that underwear is for big boys. See if you can find some matching undies for him and Daddy or for him and someone he looks up to. K.
