I potty trained Zak by bribing him. It isn't working with Alex. I have tried bribing him with treats or praise. He sat on the potty for gum then decided it wasn't worth it. He is being so stubborn. I had him wear pull-ups (which I hate) by promising him he could watch Thomas the Train. I put them on and he looked at me and pooped in them...on purpose. I ask him every day if he wants to sit on the potty and he says no. I had him go diaperless with a long T-Shirt and he kept tripping over stuff because he was playing with his penis so much. I am going crazy. He is 2.5 and I have to train him before the cruise in January plus I am simply tired of changing diapers.
Any suggestions? What works best with stubborn children? I can feel myself making this into a power play and I don't want to.
