Okay, so I saw this thing on the Today Show. When I first saw it I thought it was horrible, but they had an expert on and said it was a good thing. OF course put them in "big girl/boy panties". And explain to them that when they need to go to the potty here it is. (show them) DO NOT ASK THEM when they need to go because then they dont feel in control of their body and will rebel. So, what you do is the first day give your child salty foods..it makes them thirsty and in return they drink more. Also, if you give them more sugary drinks it makes them drink more, now I'm not saying give them a can of Mountain Dew.But the big this if they have accidents you make them clean it up. (I saw it and hated it, but they say it makes them realize its nasty and they dont want to do it) But when they mess up.. dont yell or anything just make them clean it. When they do go in the potty give them something special. Just do this until they get a hang of it. Hope I can help out.. Let me know how it goes.
