I am having a really hard time trying to potty train two of my kids. One my son is 3 and the next my daughter who is 2. My son wants to hide when he goes to the bathroom and my daughter doesnt want to go into the potty. Please offer any advice you may have. Thank you.

We have a potty chart that I made up with paper and markers... everytime they go potty on the potty they get a sticker in one of the boxes, then when they get so many stickers they get a reward... my little girl loves stickers so we took her to the store and let her pick out her own stickers and everything. This has helped us

Sometimes it helps with little boys, if every hour you put a couple of cheerios into the toilet, and tell him to try to aim and hit the cheerios,like make it a game,and make it seem fun to go to the potty.



with your daughter, you just have to give her big girl underwear,and every hour make her use the potty, if she pee pee on her self or number 2 on herself,you have her sit on the potty, for 10 minutes,this will take a couple of days to get use to but it works, my 1year old is potty trained.



note: boys are usually harder to train, so it's perfectly normal for him to refuse to use the potty, also you can put him on big boys undies, and give him a choice to use to bath room or if he wet himself or number 2 on himself, he sit on the potty for 10 minutes as well, eventually they will get tired of it



wettin the bed after being potty trained:to stop this, if you eat supper at 6.then they shouldn't have nothing to drink anymore after supper and for them to use the restroom b4 they go to bed..this really work, your pediatrician,will tell you this as well...thanks and I hope that this will be helpful...

I made up a silly song called "pee pee in the potty" and my 2 yr. old son laughs and he goes to potty. He never liked the little potty and would not use it, I had to let him use the toliet in the bathroom.
