I have a close friend who has a son (I think he is getting ready to turn 4 soon). She was having trouble with his potty training and he was refusing to go. Her son CAN go, he just chooses not to. This was the advice she received.
Take everything out of his room except his bed and dresser. (All toys, books, stuffed animals etc.) And everytime he goes like he is supposed to, he gets to choose what thing he gets back. Continue like this and if he refuses to go and goes in his pants then you take them all away again. If he continues like he is supposed to, then he gets all of his things back quickly. This does not mean that if he has an accident in the night you would take everything away, shit happens ya know
So what do you think about this parenting style? Do you think this method will be sucessful? Please explain.
I will let you know how it turned out after we discuss
