Just keep showing him...talking to him about it...he will do it, when he is ready...mine was fully trained before 3.5...and no sooner, before he was ready, was it going to happen...don't stress him or yourself about it...just show, talk to him...lots of praises for anyone using the potty...he will get it!..@ 2 years old, he probably isn't near ready though...

Follow his lead. If you are having problems he might not be ready yet. It happens but on their schedule not yours. Let him show you what he is ready for. My youngest started out just sitting on potty with clothes on. Then she went to wiping with clothes on. Then she would sit sometimes when I would go with clothes off...At first that was it then a few times she would go. It is a learning process. Just like walking and talking you have to learn the basics first then you have to fell confident that you can do it. Each child moves at their own pass, but they all get there.

make it a game get a Handful of cheerios throw them in the toilet and tell your son to aim using his pee pee and shoot the cheerios.... i know it may sound nasty , but to a two year old boy it seems fun and it teaches him how to use the potty

my eldest trained early, but he was a precocious child. My youngest waited until 3. Follow his lead. If he knows what diapers are for, and can tell you why he shouldn't train, then he's ready. Stubborn, but ready.

But, really, most boys, in my experience, are closer to being ready around the age of 3

Keep him in underwear. Its probably easier said than done but it worked for my almost 3 year old. I was so patient and introduced "the big boy potty" to him when he was 16 months and off the boobie. I kept calling him big boy he wore his little undies around the house and started following me to the toilet overtime i had to go. treat him overtime he pee or pops in toilet.

I have 2 boys, now they are 25 and 11 but both of them showed no interest until they were 3. I tried earlier but they just couldn't get it until they were 3 and it was really easy at that point. My advise is don't rush him..he will be more successful if he doesn't feel pressure. I waited until I saw dry diapers through the night..then it was super easy! Good luck!
