Okay so my name is Stephanie and I have just one child, a 2.5 year old boy. I tried to potty train him earlier today by keeping his diaper off and pulling out his potty chair and sitting him on it. Well lets just say afterwards there was pee on the floor and poop balls everywhere LOL. Someone please share some advice on how to potty train a little boy! Thanks

Okay first there is no difference in potty training a boy vs. a girl.

You need to put all diapers away and only put them on for naps or bed no matter how many accidents he has. You need to set a timer a put him on the potty every 20mins for up to five mins or until something happens. Lots of praise when it does, lots of we will get here next time for an accident and lots of we will try in a little bit for nothing.

Just a warning he still may not be 100% ready yet if after a few days he still can't or doesn't go pee or poop on the potty.
