How can I motivate my child to use the potty?

Potty Points

As added motivation, some kids respond well to "potty points". Simply make a poster, hang it in the bathroom, and after each success a point is added. You may use a stamp or stickers or even allow your child to draw the "point" on. Most children find this exciting and work hard to get more points. Be sure to give out a lot of praise and encourage all family members to do the same.
