I had the same problem with my second child and I just had to keep encouraging him and he eventually started doing it on his own.  He was about 2 1/2 I thought I was never going to get him trained. Patients is the key children do everything in their own time.

Hi~ here's a neat li'l trick I used with my son. He had a stuffed teddy bear, so I started telling him-"Mr. Bear gotta go potty!!" and I would motion for him to come in the bathroom - where I would have Mr. Bear (in pamper) take off pamper and "use the potty". Repeated this scenario several times..worked for me!!

You need to discover the "thing" that he wants more than control over the potty.  It's all about control.  My son was obsessive about his clothes.  I put him in training pants (pull-ups) and told him he wasn't getting any other clothes on until he was using the potty.  It took ONE day!!  The "thing" is different for each child and you may need to try a few things before you find the right one.

My daughter had experience with going potty - she just didn't want to. So as we were getting low on diapers, I told her we were running out and had to come up with another plan. I asked her what she wanted to do and she said she would wear her underwear. She started wearing her underwear and we haven't had an issue since - not even a night time accident! I just let it be her choice. I think the more I pushed it, the less she wanted to.

cooking timers!

i was having the hardest time getting my three yr old son potty trained. bribes werent working! so we got a little kitchen timer and attached it to his pants (like a pager) and set it for one hour. he was excited to go when it went off and even if he didnt have to "go", we still took him to the potty and had him sit. took him about a week and now he's completely potty trained!!
