  • What about a big reward? I.E. He gets a certain big toy after 30 days (don't have to be in a row, in case he has an accident or two)of only going in the toilet, and only gets to KEEP said toy if the days that follow he continues to go in the potty.

  • I think potty training is one of the hardest things to teach. I have 2 boys. It wasn't easy. Just keep at it, Mama!

  • My son was 4-4 1/2 when he was finally potty trained. What finally stopped him pooping in his pants was to let him squat on the toilet seat. After a conversation after dinner one day I discovered we had monsters in our toilet that wanted to get him/his poop. And it was an instantaneous thing too. Showed him how to get up on the seat safely and he never pooped in his pants again.
