Ok I have 4 children 2 of them are trained and it was so easy but my 3 an a half year old son well, Ive used bribery punishment uyou name it I've tried it even putting things in the toilet to make it fun but without success,. hes good for the first day he uses the toilet all day but come the second third and so on nope he will sit there and scream literally all day . He starts school next year but I'm affraid he wont be trained by then because he is so stubborn. Has anyone got any ideas because Im all out of them

There is a product called Peter Potty, its a training urinal.  I have a friend who had it at a party and the boys there just knew to pee in it when they saw it.  Of course after they did, they announced it to everyone LOL!  It is also portable so you can put it in their room too so they don't wet the bed at night.  And its only like 40 bucks-ish.  It has had great reviews for potty training boys, it actually flushes so boys find it super fun!!   You don't even have to hook it up to plumbing either.    And also reward him for good and don't punish him for doing bad, that will only discourage him from the whole process.

Is there an activity he likes to do where it'd be best if he didn't wear a diaper? One of my nephews loves to go fishing. He got introduced to it when he was like a year and a half and thought it was great. So, the winter after he turned 2(b-day in Aug), they told him he couldn't get his own fishing pole and go fishing until he went on the potty like a big boy. It wasn't long and with only a few accidents, he was completely potty trained except at night time. Hope this helps.
