A great way to start is to put him on the potty before bath time, and before bedtime. Start a routine of it for him. When he is ready it will be easy.

Well he won't be accepted into kindergarten if he is still in diapers. I wouldn't worry right now though. Just put him on the potty at various times throughout the day, but try to keep it to around the same times everyday. Also, try to keep the potty near him at first so he will remember it's there.



Really every child is different. My first son was trained near 3.5 and my second son was trained at 2 years, 10 months.

They say if they go to kindergarten in diapers you have a problem ;-). When my son was ready it only took a couple of days. Routine and positive praise I believe are the key ingredients. It is on their time, not ours. Good luck!

Thanks I have two other boys and potty training was so hard even though they were both trained by 2.5 I just don't know about this one! I take him with me when I go but I think he just likes playing with the potty itself!
