For the bottles.....throw them away. Get all the bottles out of your house. If they are not in the house then there is only the sippy to drink from. THEY WILL DRINK FROM THE SIPPY WHEN THEY GET THIRSTY. TRUST ME! They may not drink much for awhile, but once they realize that the only way they are getting something to drink is from a sippy they will start to drink from it. A few days even a few weeks of drinking less is not going to hurt them. Again they will drink when they get thirsty enough. It is just like a child that holds their breath when they are mad. If you give in then they are just going to keep going with holding their breath because it gets them what they want. Why should your kids drink from the sippy when you give them what they want (the bottle). If they have no other choice but to drink from the sippy they will....but they are going to test it to see if you will give in and give them the bottle (which that is what you are doing right now).

For the passie, cut the tip of the passie off. They don't like the feel and then give it up on their own.

For the potty training....don't rush it. Boys tend to be closer to 3yrs to 4yrs old before they are trained. Praise him when he does things that are leading that way, but let him lead the way. He may not be scared of the potty, just not ready yet.

For the bad word...ignore it. Right now it has become a fun game to them. If you don't play the game it will no longer be fun and it will stop.
