I have a two-year-old son. Can you give me any tips or share any “tricks” for potty-training?

Question by Cutie: I have a two-year-old son. Can you give me any tips or share any “tricks” for potty-training?
He is on the right track. He does usually go pee-pee when I ask him to sit on his potty. When he does this, he gets a new building block to add to the set he already has…he loves to pick new ones out. Unfortunately he does tell me when he needs to go potty, so I’m not sure how to get him to go poop on the potty.
He is coming along in the process. Most of the time he will at least sit on the potty when I ask him to. When he actually goes pee-pee (even if it’s just a little tinkle) I let him pick out a new building block to add to the set he has already earned. The only time I “make” him sit on the potty is if I see him trying to poop because at that time he will not follow me to the bathroom on his own. When he says he’s done, than I thank him for sitting on the potty and get his reward if he’s earned it. However, if I think it’s poopy time I do encourage him to sit on the potty longer and ask him if he can poop in his potty. How do I get him to want to stay on the potty when he needs to poop? Unfortunately, he does not tell me when he needs to potty, whether it’s pee-pee or poop. How can I get him to take me to the bathroom or tell me he needs to go potty?
