OK, so I'm having a hard time getting LJ started on potty training. I've done this twice before. However, I'm getting nowhere. So anybody have any advice for getting LJ to go on the potty for the first time?

Honestly, with Av I just had to wait til he was absolutely ready.

Id try and he'd scream and cry and shake like a leaf. So Id wait a few months and try again...same thing. I tried bribing and treats but it still didnt work til he was ready.

So my advice is to try sitting him on the toilet, see how he reacts and go from there. Leave him for a few minutes but if he's really not wanting it or having fits/meltdowns...try again in a few weeks.

Nah we aren't having any meltdowns, what we're having is accidents. He sits on the potty fine, but he never does anything there.

Connor was like that at first...he'd sit for hours if I let him and flush after but never do anything. Wasnt til he was about 4 that he did it and did it perfectly from day one on.

Have you tried reading while he's sitting on the toilet? Sometimes reading a book helps distract them and they go without realizing it. Doing this worked very well for the girl I babysit for; She'd sit and do nothing also so I decided to just sit and read to her on day and after awhile she peed. Her mom was surprised. That was done a few more time (yes, accidents between) and within a short time she would know to go on her own. good Luck

Hmmm, I like that idea, nobody had suggested that one yet.
