Has anyone had the problem of getting your child to SIT on the potty to go poo? My son is used to standing in his diaper to go, so now that we're potty training he insists on standing on the toilet seat to go #2. Splash! Any suggestions?

  • with my son i would put him on the potty backwards and put a couple of cheerioes in the potty so he could see them,and told him he had to try and sink them! he loved it! thought it was a game. now he goes like everyone else! you should try it at least he might sit on the potty that way!!!:)
