sit him down on the potty first thing when he gets up then if he does it give him praise and a sticker. He will most likely have to go when he first gets up.

try getting out the potty and letting him explore it seeing how it works. Let him sit on it even with his clothes on and just have fun with it at first. You may even want to take him into to the bathroom when u or your significant other goes so he can learn by observing hope I was able to help.

Follow a schedule and take him potty every two hours. I recommend to praise only verbally. Maybe make up a funny song and dance or just clap sheering him. There are children that learned to make things to please you only in exchange of prizes (stickers, toys, etc.) and that could be a headache in the future when they reach school age.
