    Read this and try it. It's how I taught my son. It took 4 days.

  • I just recently got a book/video combo called The Potty Movie and it is amazing, it is by Barron's. They have the videos for boys or girls. I would try that. You can find it on Amazon, Ebay or Toys R Us, to name a few. Also, getting their very own potty with their favorite character seems to draw interest to it. Good luck.

  • The way my son was trained to poop and pee in the potty, is when i cach him in that moment i started to hold him over the toalet like hold him by his legs in the sitting motion and give him something in his hands to hold to play with or otherwise he is kind of unconfortable or shy to b in that position remember babys like little old guys they know and understand alot than you think, just show em how to do it.
