im still trying to figure that out. i have a seat that goes on top of the regular potty and he sits on that. i figure that once we actually get him trained, then we can start standing up. we also started to give him a small treat(mini chocolate) when he does go.

When you go to buy a potty chair take him with you and let him pick out the potty chair. This increase his excitement and pride in his potty chair. Sam with picking out underware. Before I actually started potty training I took my son with me to the bathroom everytime I went saying something like pee-pee goes in the potty, poo goes in the potty. I did this for 3 days, on the last day I put his potty chair in the bathroom and just had him sit on it when I did, clothes on. Then on the forth day when he gets up in the morn sit on the chair, encourage drinking, move the potty chair into whatever room he is in. Best also that you stay with him as much as possible, that away you learn his body language before the starts to potty. Reward after the pottys. Even if he starts to go in his underware but finishes in the potty. He may not be fast enough at first to make it 100% in the chair. Whenever possible let him run with just underware and shirt. Trying to take pants off my be too much at first. During the first 3 days you can practice taking off his pants. Especially when getting dressed and undressed for the day. Always, always celebrate a pee-pee well done. We called daddy at work, gran'ma. Hope this helps some and good luck.

I put the potty chair in whatever room my son is in. That away it reminds him to use the potty when he needs to go. Also his potty chair makes truck noises when he potty's in it.

I had a hard time with my 2yr old boy, he wanted to play in the bathroom. My mom actually gave me a little advice that worked. My son is scared of the big toilet so she told me to bring his potty out to an area that he is in and will go to (ex: the living room) Of course you may only want to do this when there isnt company over :) but i let him run around in a pair of underwear and he knows where his potty is and he's getting the concept now.

Have him watch other "boys" go. It will let him see the "same parts" on somebody else so he feels more comfortable.

try putting cheerios in the toilet for him and tell him to sink the ships(if he is standing and going), try to make it a game, if dad is available have him help out too!
