Hi cheers,have you tried any methods yet? does he/she wear disposable diapers or cloth? does he/she show any signs of being aware of being wet? I am a co-leader on an Ivillage toilet traing board and help as many as I can in this area,with the answer to these quarries,I will give you what help I can.

My son is 16 now, but this is what worked well for me when he was potty training. First, I started out by taking him to the potty every time I went. This was when he was still wearing his diapers. Just to get him used to the idea, before we really starting the training process. Then, after he got used to his little potty, I started taking him every hour and a half just to see if he had to go. I'd tell him let's go try to potty. I didn't make him stay there forever or anything, just a couple mins to see if he had to go. Once he was in a routine of going it was a breeze. I started all of this when he was almost two and he was completely trained by 2 and a half. It wasn't a really fast process, but it worked. Good luck with your training.
