First you keep it in his mind to wee wee or use the pot.He's not gonna get it right then n there it's gne tke awhile depening on hw good he takes to using the pot.So in that case make it fun for him.When my lil man turned like 20months I put it in his head to say if he had to pee.Then when he turned 2 we played (shoot the ducky.) know it might sound crazy but it was amusing to him so it gave him courage to keep going n tryn (as though it was his own personal gme) til he learned n gt it right .Then off came the diapers so that he knows he's a big boy no more diaper.Nw dnt gt it twisted he will sometimes slip up but with the right training he'll gt it right.Dnt mke him feel as though it's a must to use the restroom cause all it will do is intimidate him n he'll hve more slip up's.Learning is nt a problem to toodlers if its fun n entertaining.

I havent started potty training my son yet but I have potty trained my nephew and the thing that I did was once we started potty training I wouldnt put him in a diaper again because then he would just think he could go in it and I would ask him about every 10 minutes if he had to go potty and even if he told me no after a few times I would sit him on the potty just to make him try he did really good with that now its time for my son to start hes 17 months and I want to get him potty trained by the time #2 will be here the end of may so I hope all goes as good as my nephew did with me good luck though
