Different things have worked for each of my children. It was really a case of trial and error. Try, try, try, until you find something that works. With my daughter, she LOVED getting treats whenever she went. She only got them if she remembered. As she started going more on her own, she quit asking for treats. When she had a setback, I just started giving the treats again.
With my firstborn son, he HATED doing things himself. If he wet/pooped his pants, he had to stay in the bathroom until he got his clothes off (I cleaned him up) and then he had to dress himself in the clean clothes I gave him. There were times it took over an hour to do that. But he quit going in his pants.
My second born LOVED cleaning up his messes. LOL! But he hated going naked. He was given one pair of underwear and pants a day. If he wet them, he went naked the rest of the day. After a few weeks, that cured him!
