When was your son completely potty-trained?

I don't have a son, but I work at a child care, and have been on hand in potty training many boys and girls. Our rule of thumb is that if your child cant speak the sentence "I need to potty" or some variation of that, then he/she isn't ready. That being said, we potty trained a boy at 3...and another was only ready about 2 months before he turned 4, they really do wait untill they are ready. Typically we have seen that the longer you wait, the faster it will be when you potty train.

My son was actually almost 4 when he potty trained. That was when he was ready. My daughter was 3. Every kid has a different timeline as to when they will be ready. They are now teenagers and are no worse for wearing diapers a little longer than my neighbor's kids did. :)

My son was potty trained right at 2, but I work from home and would basically let him run around the house naked. I've heard a couple people who did that and their boys were potty trained faster. (It was just my son and I at home all day though) so I probably wouldn't recommend that if you have other little ones around. :-)
