    I don't recall when my boys finally got it but they did on their own time.

    They had a kids two step stool to the toilet so they could get on and a smaller inner ring for the seat so they did not fall in.

    Big thing is to not get mad or freak out this will just delay the process such as...

    My youngest was starting to pee standing up well he in in the bathroom with my wife and he really has to go so down comes his pants and he starts going off like an out of control fire hose pee is going everywhere and she is yelling at him "to grab it and get it under control, it’s on the roof walls and my wife!" Well he is 6 now and refuses to stand and pee his 4 yeard old brother seems to have no problem with it.

      Dang! I wish Brianna was like this. It would make potty training so much easier. One minute, she wants a diaper and the next minute she wants a pull up.
      I also have trouble, because she wants to pee like I do (I use catheters through a mitrofanoff), and its hard to explain to her that she can't pee like that. I don't know how many times she will try to pee through her belly button and then gets upset when nothing will come out. The same with when she sees me wearing adult diapers, due to incontinence. Any tips for this?

          Did any of you use a potty training chart, where the kids can put stickers for certain things they did? I recently put one up in my bathroom for Brianna and told her that when all the start had stickers on them, that she would get a special present from Auntie (me).

          Did this work with any of your kids? I thought I'd get her a book or a doll as a present. So far, she is still having accidents off and on and really not going in the potty at all, despite wanting to sit on the potty every half hour when our timer dings for her. I am happy that she is willing to sit on the potty without any arguments, but I just wish that she'd go in the potty.

            maybe she isnt quite ready.
            leave her potty available, even if it has to be outside the bathroom at first.

            I have found the girls much easier to potty train than boys. the girls wanted the big girl pretty panties I bought, said look what you get when you can go pee and poo in the potty!!!

            boys got superman underwear or ninja turtles, but still crapped them. I finally got my son to get the picture when I made him rinse out his shitty underwear one day when id had enough. I still feel bad about that, but it did the trick.

            I think the girls started sooner too. my daughter was about ten months old, my son three and a half. what a stressfull nightmare it was with him.

            by the time mine were done, I got to potty train a few more who were cousins or kids I babysat. a special trip to the underwear department, so they could pick what they wanted helped get things started and motivated, and easy access to a potty helped to as the window between I gotta go, and oops I went is small.

            l



            the boys didnt want to bother with stopping playing and didnt care if they were packng a turd.

                Yea, Brianna does tell me if she is wet or messy and wants to be changed right away. She will immediately stop playing or watching a TV show to get changed.

                I think I will take her early next month to Wal-Mart and have her pick out a pair of panties she'd like for when she goes in the potty more and more.

                  I took an old poster and drew a chart on the back. My son LOVED stickers. When he went pee in the potty he got 1 sticker...poo was worth two.

                  I let him go naked, when I would catch him peeing on the floor I would say " you're a smart boy aren't you?" He'd say "yes" then I would ask where smart boys went.

                  It took a couple of weeks. There were accidents. I'd set a timer and have him try everytime the timer went off. Successes were praised loudly. He got to wear big boy briefs on shopping trips. The only time we used diapers was at night or naptime.

                  Another thing is to switch to cloth during training so they can feel the mess. They don't like it and want it changed. Training pants are also good for this.

                  Have fun!!

                    The inlaws son had a young un, just this last week, they were doing the go nekid around the house. Dad caught him holding his wewe, he said you gotta go? He said yea, he said run for the potty. The kid turned and ran.... left a little turd right on the floor. Gawd I love it.You guys with the little guys and gals, it's the memories that are made.

                      they come in packs of 3-4, get at least two packs to start her. accidents do happen, and have some ziplocks for wet undies, incase you are out and have to change into dry stuff.
                      she is just about ready to do this herself, if she is coming to be changed right after going. note my daughter, pee'd the bed for some years after. pull ups at night or during naps, save on laundry, dignity, and parental frustration.

                          Thanks for all the helpful advice! Yesterday evening, when I had Bri sit on the potty before getting her pajamas on, she went pee! Boy, I praised her a whole lot. She was so happy to finally have a sticker in the "I went in the potty" section of the chart we copied off the computer and to hear her potty chair make music (we have a Fisher Price Princess Potty Chair). She also got an Otter Pop for going in the potty.

                          Hopefully, this keeps up and she will go in the potty more and more.

                              Yea, my mom wasn't too fond of becoming a grandma when my sister announced she was pregnant, but after Bri was born, she loves the role of Grandma. I especially love the role of Auntie.
