    PULL UPS...use those

    Then if they have a mistake reassure them its ok

    when they do go potty congratulate them on a job well done.

    Children eat "positive reassurance" up

    Thanx

    there's also always the cheerios trick too..

    toss a cherrio in the center and tell them it's a fun game to get it wet... motivates kids to use the potty and to use the toilet. :) 

    Also, the positive reinforcement definately works over the negative reinforcement.

    My son picked it up right away at 2. It was a lot of work on our part, but it was worth it when the diapers are gone.

    We started him in pull ups and constantly asked if he had to go. After a while, we just took the pull ups off and he wore underwear and keep on asking. There were some accidents (hell there still are and he is 5) but we always brought a change of cloths and debt with it like that.

    He still wore the pull ups at night, but we did the same routine at night, first go pee then to bed and no more drinks before bed time.

    I think if they where the Pull-ups then know that it is a diaper so they will still go in it like a diaper. It doesn’t take long for them to realize if they pee in their pants, it is uncomfortable....

    Good luck!

    It's been soooo long since Tommy had been trained. So Get Pull Ups No rather than later once they get it down? I'll grab some today. The positive thing is working just at the wrong time.

    Just let them go Free Range. It'll fertilize your lawn and deal with the issue at the same time.

    My first son had a huge problem with potty training. He showed interest in it before he was 2, but he could never go unless he had a diaper on. He was almost 3 before we got him potty trained, and we tried EVERYTHING. But when it happened, it just happened. He started doing it everytime almost immediately, was using the potty full time within 3 days, and he's only had a couple of accidents in the 10 months since.

    Because of our experience, I kind of think that all the tricks may just be gravy, and they'll only really learn when they're ready.

    That's still the only way I can go. People always look at me weird when they see a baggie full of cheerios in my pocket. Good thing they don't see the other pocket with the baggie full of wet cheerios.

    Thanks for the tips. My 2 and a half year old is to the point where we've been trying, but there hasn't been much interest. We just found out that Baby II is on the way next summer, so we'd really like to have a couple months w/o diapers, if possible.

    We've only gone through the training with our girl... the boy is just over a year right now.

    We just basically built up wearing "big-girl" panties so much that she wanted them that badly and never had an accident in them. We also spent an entire weekend in the house filling her up with water/juice/milk whatever and taking her to the potty often until she just figured it out.

    I've heard that boys can be a little harder with the training, but as I said I have no experience with that.... Yet. We never had any luck with the pull-ups, but they are at least worth a try.

    Best of luck with it.

    Rub their noses in it?

    I dunno, seems better than that Cheerios thing. I mean, that might teach 'em that whatever they find in the bowl is food.

    I peed in an electrical outlet once when I was 5.

    Don't do that.

    Be cruel. Seriously. My Mum sat me on the potty until I went. Felt like hours for me, but I'm sure it was only 10 minutes or so. (Or maybe it was hours?)

    A friend has a 3 year old who was a nightmare to potty train. In the end we all realised she didn't want to go to the the potty because all us grown ups go to the toilet, which she wanted to do too. So it was either the toilet, or nothing.

    If they can't control their bowels, get 'em away from your toys!
