  • putting a cheerio of petal in the bowl and getting him to have a go at ‘SINKING’ it with his wee.
    Definitely not applying any stress or pressure is certainly key and keeping in mind that they do get there eventually.


  • Sticker chart:)


  • Sticker chart and incentive at the end worked for my children,


  • How is he going with his toilet training?


  • we’ll be starting soon and there are some good tips here for me to try


  • how did it go? :)


  • Hope you managed to find some ideas that have helped.


  • How is your boy now with toilet training?


  • What did you end up doing?


  • I hope you have managed to have some success.


  • How did you go with your boy?


  • Use ping pong balls or really cheap cereal (fruit loops, cheerios etc) as wee targets in the toilet. Add a couple of drops of blue food colouring in the toilet. It’s supposed to turn green when wee hits it.


  • I have downloaded a rewards chart from online for toilet training, have a search online for them.


  • Wanted to know aswell, thanks for posting.


  • We used to have a jar of lollies and for each time she did a poo in the toilet she got a lollie and each time she did a wee, she got a sticker to put onto her chart and at the end of the chart/row she got a little surprise.
