What are some tips for potty training a three year old boy?

He will use the potty when he pees but when he poops, he does it in his pants. And when we are out, he will ask to go after he has pottyed in his pants. please help me moms.

  • go to the dollar store and pick out a few toys. Let your son see them and have them in plain view. He will want them. bad. Tell him that when he poops in the potty and ONLY when he poops in the potty can he pick one out. He will probably beg, plead, cry and carry on to try to get a toy. but be firm. When he wants the prize bad enough he will go on the potty. Just make sure he is constantly reminded that the toys are there and he could play with them... if he goes potty.

    I got a few books and toys from a second hand shop and bribed my son. He was potty trained in a couple of days. It was amazing. I hope this helps:)
