Try the TV, put on his favorite show or dvd, give him some water or juice and give him time to go. If he's into the movie he be less likely to want to wander or feel like he's being punished by sitting in the chair. Also try right before bed or when they first wake up before they get too wiggly. Also he might watch you poop and copy but it's really helpful if a guy shows him how to pee. sometimes if they do it standing up like a game , they are more likely to do it more consistently than when seated.

ok, going 'potty' isn't the problem if he's going in the closet and on the floor... its actually going to the actual potty....um, are you having him go in the toilet or in a potty training toilet? maybe the actual toilet scares him...
