  • Bribe him! That's what my mom did with us. She promised us cookies. We were potty trained by one and a half.

  • Try cheerios. My son liked to aim for the floating cheerios. LOL I also offered him 1 jelly bean each time he pottied in the toilet and 2 for a poopie. He loved that.

  • This may be a little off of the wall here, but maybe if you have a male role model show him how to pee on a tree outside in the backyard? My dad showed my son how to do this, and he thought it was so cool that he started peeing outside for the first day or so, but then we showed him where to do it (in the bathroom) and he did great ever since. It is a trial and error thing, potty training your child, so you may have to try several different aproaches.
