Does he like books? I found an "Potty Time With Elmo." It's one of those books that you push a button and it makes sounds. He really liked that and there's a "Elmo's Potty Time" DVD too, complete with catchy songs about how fun it is to use the potty. We also used those washable tattoos as rewards and had a sticker chart. If he filled the chart he would get something bigger. Even if it's a trip to the park or a day of fishing with Dad, or a pizza party, he has something to look forward to. ...even a sleepover at grandmas. Good luck!

My son was the same age and was totally not interested. I just got sick and tired of pull-ups. (He would do #2 though in the toilet which I found weird) Literally one day I believe he was just turning 4 and decided that bathrooms were cool I would send him to school in pullups and the teacher said he that when she would send the kids to the bathroom he use to just stand in the stall and do nothing but then he just starting using it. He prefers to sit then stand though and I try not to push it. He is using the toilet so I am just happy. He is 5 now (Born October) but once in a while when I see him doing the dance I'll remind him to go the bathroom. He has had veryyyy few accidents, thank god, but HE is NOT potty trained at bedtime. No matter what I do he doesn't get up in the middle of the night. HE will take the pull up off and then theres an accident but he refuses to get up. I do make him use the bathroom as soon as he gets up and right before he goes to bed, and I have limited the water at night. But I really don't force him to train at night. He has his own mind and if he doesn't want to do it he doesn't (He's like my husband in that way lol) It will happen but as everyone says in his OWN time. Some kids can't be forced to trained.

My daughters were potty training their sons at the same time. One was 2 1/2 and the other was 1 1/2. I bought them each a childs urinal and they have been doing much better since. They are available at Amazon.com for about 13.00. Wishing you good luck.
