  • I hate to say it but if he's already three its time for tough love. Put him in regular undies and rubber training pants. When he wets you discipline. However you choose. Spank, lecture, make him sit in it for a couple minutes or whatever. When he tells you he has to go reward. Candy, loving, clap, happy dance or whatever it takes.
