If we are talking about a boy use something for him to target practice with like cheerios in the toilet for him to aim at.A special potty song is a good way to make them give it a try. NEVER flush the toilet with the kid in the room!!!!!!They fear they will get sucked in.Let them pick out there own potty seat at the store,it makes them feel important.

Well, I'm probably not the one who should be giving advice since isn't (and apparently doesn't want to be) potty trained. We looked online and found an awesome potty chart called the potty train (he LOVES thomas and anything trains) and we taped it up across from the toilet, so if he goes potty he gets to fill it in and see his progress. At the end of the chart he gets a train! (Even though it's an awesome idea, he still isn't potty trained. He knows what to do, he just won't do it!)

I bought something for my son that he really really wanted and then set it up on a shelf in the bathroom so he could see it all the time. He thought about it a lot and knew he could not get the toy until he went to the bathroom for a whole week. I also sat him on the toilet instead of having him stand because it was hard for him to get the concept to stand to do one thing and sit to do the other. Once he got it figured out, he actually started standing on his own one day. Good Luck, potty training can be frustrating. But I guess we have to remember that they are not going to be 10 and not know how to go to the bathroom right? They will figure it out. By the way, I saw your name on Annalee's blog and thought your stuff was too cute!

The best advise I can give is be positive and don't get frustrated because they get frustrated too! We always gave a small cookie for Pee-pee and a small candy bar for Shoo-Shoo. Yeah and before you know it they are done!

I would say the very BEST thing to do . . . is wait until they are ready. Continually introduce get Big-Kid underpants, and bring it up every couple of days, and you'll be surprised, one day they will just be ready!

I LOVE your bag! LOVE LOVE LOVE it!

Hope to win, my email is, also I have a contest of my own going on! If you want to check it out go to!
Thanks for the Give-Away!

I think it's really funny that Besty linked this from her blog, but hasn't even commented! Come on Bets! :)

Anyway, this is very timely since I just potty-trained my son this weekend! Most of my advice has already been said:
1. wait until he's ready- otherwise you're dealing with a lot of frustration.
2. don't worry about the standing up until they get the bladder control stuff down.
3. Talk it up a whole lot before putting any pressure on.
4. Find a good bribe!

Good luck

I love your bags! I have one Betsy gave me when my #3 was born and use it a lot. You're so creative!

I saw your give away on Annalee Taylor's blog. :) CUTE BAG! Good luck with the potty training! I actually did a post on this about what worked for us, you can check it out if you want. My husband's aunt owns a daycare and so she has potty trained MANY kids! I called her when it was time to potty train and it SO worked for us! :)
