Can he pee on his own?

That was fun teaching him. Throw a couple of cheerios in the toilet and show him how to aim for them.  They love it! ;) ;D

Bribing him with M&Ms seems to be helping.

LOL, isn't it great?  Adan was watching me take a leak the other day and decided to stick his hand in the stream of pee coming out ;D ;D.

My 19 month old pays attention to her big sis and has used the potty a little. Yesterday she decided to pull her pull up down and use the rocking chair though.

My youngest tried to pop the bubbles in the toilet with his finger...while I was still in the process of making them.  ;D

We bribed my son with Skittles. One for going number one, and two for going number two. Once in a while i woulb throw in a new Star Wars figure as well to keep it interesting. It was relatively painless.

I used M&M's.  Same principle.  Minus the star wars figure.  Was pain free and quick.  Both of my daughters were basically potty trained before they turned three.  The only drawback is that they both love chocolate now.  I can still bribe them with M&M's to get stuff done around the house even when they don't want to do chores.  It's fantastic.

Just a few more years until a couple of pieces of candy will have them cutting the yard and trimming all the hedges/bushes around the house.

The WWII soldiers had a saying.  Candy is dandy, but liquor is quicker.

It's not really very hard. If you feed him on a regular schedule, wait 20 minutes after he eats, get him a book or a toy and set him on the potty. Don't let him up until he goes. He will quickly figure out that the sooner he goes, the sooner he gets off the pot. He will also figure out the eating/potty connection. This will require a little effort on your part, but should only take a day or two for him to get it. Talk to him and repeat over and over, "if you go potty, you can go back to cartoons or whatever he was doing. Consistency is the key. BTW, if you bribe him to go to the potty, you will likely wind up bribing him for everything. That is a bad pattern to develop. JMHO

Maybe you could just hook a wet/dry vac to his diaper and fire it up every time your boy gets that "look" on his face.

(You can tell I don't have children) :)

My son is killing me. He's great in public restrooms, but at times at home it looks like he's trying to put a fire out. I'm getting sick of cleaning urine.

Hahaha i started laughing when i read that

That's ok. Last night he was standing in the hallway with no diaper on telling us he needed to go poo. Just at that moment, what appeared to be an 8 inch black slug crawled down his leg and landed on the floor. Thank goodness for hardwood.
