How do you train a 3 1/2 yr old whose almost 4 yrs old?

I say let them run around without a nappy wearing big kid undies. They will hopefully get sick and tired of wetting themselves. And do it with a sticker chart. Buy some really cool puffy colourful stickers and get them to help you design the sticker chart (it only needs to be basic i.e on coloured paper with maybe 5 x 4 squares for the stickers to go on and their name rally big - they can colour their name and draw pictures around the edges or wherever), hang it at their eye level in an important place like by the toilet or by their bed. Whenever they use the potty or toilet they can choose the sticker and put it on the chart. I say 1 sticker for using the potty and two stickers for using the toilet. Make a big deal out of it when it works an if they slip up give them a hug and say its okay you'll get it next time. Anyway thats what we did who knows if its right? x good luck
