Go buy "Once Upon a Potty" by Alona Frankel and READ it to your child often. I did this with one of my children several years ago and they really got the idea with this book. I understand this book now comes in boy and girl versions, which is a great thing. Keep the potty in the area they are in during the day (living room, play room, whereever) and encourage them to try using it. Use rewards for getting it right. And be patient when mistakes happen!
