Okay. So let's talk about what to do when you're ready to start potty training your child. First of all, you want to get him used to the potty, so give him the opportunity to sit on the potty every time you change his diaper. Also, you want to get him involved in becoming more independent with potty training so you want to teach him to pull his pants up and down on his own. Give him that opportunity as well with diaper changes.

You also want to encourage him to sit on the potty with every diaper change and you can even consider using a reward for every time he sits on the potty to encourage him to want to do it again in the future. It's important that you invest in a potty or a potty seat that your child would be interested in using and you also need lots of underwear, because he will have lots of accidents.

It's also important to be prepared to reward your child if and when he does go pee in the potty, so you want to make sure you also have a reward for when he has a success in the potty, and that's how you can get started with the potty training.
