We keep a bag of bite sized chocolates (snickers mini mix). Everytime our son uses the potty, he gets a reward. Don't know how hyper your boys are, so you may want to try a different method of reward. Whatever you do, don't get angry with accidents... they ARE going to happen. You also may want to take them to the bathroom with daddy when he has to go. If they see what daddy is doing, they may want to copy him. There are all kinds of methods, but your kids will let you know when they are ready. My son is almost three and we are still struggling with going pee in the potty. He still won't poop. My mothers friend had a son who was well into 4 years before he was potty trained (a little extreme to me), but the point is, don't rush it. Potty training is the one thing that children will do when THEY are ready.

Boys are harder to potty train then girls!

With my boys I remind them every so often. If they haven't been for over two hour I ask them to go for me and I'll organise a surprize for them when they get out. The surprise is sometimes a lolly or colouring pictures I have downloaded off the net or arts & craft! Both of my elder boys have responded to the reminders and rewards well. My six year old has been fully toilet trained for two years and my four year old hardly has any accidents. (he has about 1 a month)

I just used routine( example). First thing in morning we take pull up off then sit on potty...after breakfast take a potty break.....just took potty breaks throughout the day.We had to try to sick to a routine and within a few weeks he knew what to do. Good luck

I just bought GI Joe underwear and superman and other super heroes and told my son he could not pee on Superman etc. and he did not. He got the underwear for his second birthday and he did great from the start.

My son is autistic and really stubborn about the toilet, we made a chart for him and when he has used the loo he gets stickers when he reaches his goal amount he gets a reward, he made the chart and chose his reward himself and is doing really well now
