I am getting ready to potty train Caleb. Do you have suggestions on how to train a boy?

I have a son named Caleb also!! I potty trained him in less than two days and it was the easiest thing ever! We took him to Wal-Mart and let him pick out his own underwear (he chose Cars), and then I sent my husband while my son wasn't watching, and he picked up a package of plain white underwear. We put the Cars underwear on when he woke up in the morning and after he had his accident we changed them out for the plain white underwear. We just explained that Lightnin' McQueen doesn't like to get wet and so he's gone back to his pit stop! The next morning we put back on his Cars underwear (a new pair!) and did the same thing. It took about 2 or 3 days and he hasn't had another accident!

throw cheerios in the toliet and see if he can hit them. makes it fun and he wont go on the floor. also reward with things like gold stars with a reward after so many times,. post the stars in the bathroom so he can see them.Good luck

I think the main thing for effective potty training is be consitant, praise when he does good and don't get upset when he has a accedent and remember all children are differant and their is no fool proof way of potty training. Good Luck.

Hi I have heard that if you put cheerios in the toliet and tell him to try and aim and hit them it works?!
