M&M Reward


Here's an oldie but a goodie — every time your child goes on the potty, she gets an M&M. One candy for number one, two candies for number two. All kids like candy (right?), so it's a good incentive. One of our readers said it worked for all three of her kids, and they'd always do the "pee-pee in the potty dance" on their way to reap their reward. We aren't sure what that entails, but we're guessing it's a fun one!

If you'd rather not use candy as a reward, pennies work like a charm, too!
