I totally agree, using only positive reinforcement with children is silly. They need to know when they do something wrong just as much as when they do something good.
Kids do get hooked on rewards sometimes! A simple praise worked well enough for us as well.
I agree with watching dad but I think it works with mom too.
I think watching mom confuses boys. Mom just sits down, boys need to think about sitting or standing, as well as aiming. Seeing a woman do it does not really teach them anything beyond that mom uses a toilet.
I haven't taught my boy to stand yet. He's fully out of diapers but sits for everything. My husband and I decided we would introduce standing after he had mastered basic potty training . So I'm sure we'll start that soon.

Aww don't worry, I'm sure he'll get there. My little brother... well not so little anymore (6ft 15year old) didn't potty train until just after 4 years. I've heard boys are a lot harder than girls to potty train.
