Day 5 - I'm trained!

Paul is NOT! So, I finally figured out that if I set the timer every 15 minutes and have him sit, we don't have accidents! He doesn't go every time, but he thinks about it. This way he doesn't sit on the potty for long periods of time either. He's either naked or with a pair of underwear on. I'm hoping we will progress from this to independent pottying soon (or I will have to give up cause every 15 minutes, really?).

Oh, yeah, another reason we had this turning point is we made his monkey act out drinking, needing to potty, and asking Paul where monkey should pee pee. Then we put monkey on the little potty to pee.

This is how my mom trained all of us. And how I trained Blake. As he progresses to no accidents you slowly lengthen time between potty times and then all of a sudden, the kid can go hours! Good luck. I was about to tell you that perhaps Paul isn't ready, but this tactic might work! Good luck again!
