i let my son go to the potty with me to show him its safe, he didn't like his potty he wanted to be a big boy and sit on the toilet, try that maybe he'll use the toilet instead.

i do the whole sticker thing with my son,when we first tried to get him to go potty he refused to sit on it too.what we did was pretend it was a normal chair and put him on it when he was watching telly.Or make it into a game now all we have to do is put him on it and he goes straight away because he knows he gets to pick a sticker at the end of it.

hmmmmm....maybe try to find the underlying problem as to why he doesn't want to sit on it? is he afraid? one thing that helped me with my 3 year old while i was training her is stickers. she LOVES stickers so when she went potty she got a sticker. but she didn't refuse to sit on it. so sorry if this doesn't help!
