It is more difficult to potty train boys than girls and most mothers agree to the view point. First of all you need to evaluate if you child is ready for potty training before you begin the task.
Your toddler could be ready if they start listening to you and even carry out simple tasks when you ask them to do. For example, does he fetch you a bottle of water if you ask him to? These can be early indications that your toddler is ready to be potty trained.
Also, another sign is if your toddler wets the diaper only once in three hours because this shows that he has bladder control. When you begin potty training, include your baby in the shopping time when you go to buy a potty for him. Do not go directly and buy the potty; instead first buy a toy that he likes and then buy the potty next. You will see that he is eager to use both his toy and the potty.
If you have a doll, make the doll sit on the potty and pretend as if the doll has urinated in the potty by pouring some water and praise the doll. Your son can relate to the whole incident and will also understand that sitting on it for potty is a good thing. Take his permission before stopping diapers and say that he does not need diapers anymore. Praise him that he is a big and strong boy now. Boys like their ego to be pampered from a young age!
