My son gets inspired to use the potty more when he sees other kids his age wearing big boys underwear and using the potty. Do you have a friend that he could watch them go?

Don't bet yourself up most kids r like that at that age ............my daughter is the same way they want to do it when they want to do it don't stop encouraging him................today for the first time my daughter took off her pamper and Pepe in her potty.............i was so happy, i wasn't even around when she did it she came and told me come mommy and showed me................He will do it on his own but still tell him keep the potty around where he is mostly

My son is stubborn too and he is 3. I have put his potty out in the open so he is constantly reminded that he has to use it. I leave him to run bare-bottomed most of the day and this helps tremendously! I also offer him incentive to use it like putting a new sticker on his chart and letting him pick stickers out in the store. I also get small toys from Family Dollar and when he poops I give him one of those every once in awhile. I also remind him several times in the hour that he is wearing big boy underwear and we wouldn't want to pee all over spiderman! LOL! It has worked so far, except when he goes to his dads. His dad brings him back in diapers every time. It's SO frustrating! Good luck!
