Re: PLEASE help me, I'm at my wits end with this!
I think the Fruit Loop idea mayhelp. if you can guess when he is going to go (sort of) you could turn it into to a game instead of "Potty training" .
Say something like..."Hey little man let's go play bulls eye with Fruit loops. This may entice him to play the Fruit loop game on his own. It may at least turn this urge into something positive.
Also I think I would try to keep the training tolietvery close to wherever he is playing, and perhaps keep fruit loops in it to encourage independent trials.
