The Potty Training Nightmare

My 3 year old son is potty training. He will be 4 next month. We tried when he was younger, but found he just was not ready. Now with three in diapers, I am ready and I’m hoping he is as well. We have tried many times with parties, stickers, rewards, but none of these ideas worked. I think it is a power struggle with him. I say this because anytime I ask him to go he says “no”. If I leave him alone, he goes on his own! I’ve added an incentive. I hung a Transformer that he wants in the bathroom where he can see it but not touch it. Every time he pees in the potty he gets a cotton ball to out into a jar. When the jar in full he gets his Transformer! It’s worked so far and this morning he got his Transformer! Now I’m upping the challenge….1 cotton ball for pee, 2 for poop and one will be removed every time he goes in his pants! The prize will be the ultimate Transformer, Optimus Prime! He has agreed to accept my challenge!
