The best way to train your child and get him to follow you is to set a reward system. There are a lot of parents who could already prove that this really works. For example when your child does exactly what you tell him, then you could give him some candy. The message could be instilled in their mind better since there is a reward that encourages them. Make sure that you vary the kind of candies you give to your child so that it does not become boring and also to surprise them.
It is also important that you talk to them a lot. Before you start your training, explain to them everything about the potty training. As much as possible, mention a couple of times the word “potty”. This will give them a signal that when the training starts, it is all about how to go potty the right way. This is certainly a lot of competition in the attention of your child on the time of the training so make sure that you get his attention first.
Playing a game would also help. There are some children who want to play big girl or big guy already. Have them wear the underwear for big kids in order to challenge them to act like big kids when it's time to potty. Make sure that you express to them how proud you are when they do things right. See to it that you don't show any sign of frustration to your children. It will not convey a good message.
