    Train the girl. The boy will follow. Don’t worry about him for now. The key to potty training is to make diapers not an option. Take them away say they finished and you have no money to buy more. She has to pee in the potty like a big girl. She will have accidents at first. Use them to track how often she pees and put her on the potty or toilet in those increments. Always make sure she pees before naps and the first thing after naps/night sleep. If she wakes up at night out her on the potty right away. The boy will see this and will either follow along or you can train him after

    Totally agree, worry about 1 at a time, but if the son wants to try while sister is peeing encourage him to do so. If they both really get into it, you could almost use it as a race or contest, making them want to keep up with the other or do better than the other.., if they like buttons like on elevators and such, tell them they can flush but that it only flushed if you pee into the potty. My son loved flushing and was great at going so he could flush! Have the boy learn to stand and pee like daddy. That is truly when my son finally stopped having accidents when he could stand and pee. Good luck!

    Go to the pet store, get a large bottle of Nature’s Miracle. It will remove pee smell from carpet and couches. Stuff works great! After paper toweling as much pee from the carpet as possible, drench the area with the Nature’s Miracle and blot dry.

    I’ve always had success using the three day method. (I used to nanny, I’ve given this method to several families and it’s worked in all cases, with the exception of one little boy that took a little longer for #2) The three day method: good for ages 2+ generally. If your toddler expresses a discomfort in any way from a soiled diaper (refusing to sit, telling you they pooped, etc) this will work! Take your little one to pick out undies, I recommend training undies- NOT pull-ups- training undies have a little extra padding in the middle so that the sensation of wet is still felt on the skin (diapers keep kids feeling dry longer) while giving the clothes and surrounding furniture a little protection. So you take your kid, you pick out undies, now you have to 100% commit the next three days (you can put tiny to bed In sleepy diapers) to potty training. Here’s the thing that freaks everyone out- little one is going to wear the real undies right now. All day. Yes, they will have accidents. You’ll probably clean up poop. You may ruin a rug. But they will FEEL the difference in comfort and movement and then they will feel the discomfort and notice the sensation more naturally. A lot of infants will show discomfort with a large bowel movement by 1 year no doubt. But diapers offer so much extra padding, and in some cases, even have a chemical inside the padding that chambers liquids into a gel and keeps a child dry. This serves a purpose for an immobile infant, but for our toddlers, it only hinders their sensory development and delays potty training. Using the three day method with a rewards system of some type in place is also a good way to make it more fun for everyone. Sorry for the long post, I’m super serious about this method, it sounds crazy, but i swear it works!
