How do I start to potty train? Should I just go out and by him a little toilet?

With all of my three boys...I started first with allowing them to come into bathroom with me and explain to them what I am doing. At first, this was a very funny idea that you used the potty instead of just doing it in your diapers. I also would ask them if they felt the urge to poop or pee and if they did we would go into the bathroom and tried to use the potty. Basically learning by example. Don't rush your kiddo...they will take it in there own stride. If you think buying him his own potty will promote the idea of going on the potty and not in your pants, its a good idea. Positive feedback is good even if he just sits on it. You might have him go in with you when you have to go and sit him on his potty while you are on your potty. Just a couple of ideas! Hope they help! Just a word of caution though...I'm a single mom, so there was no male figure to show my eldest how to stand up and pee. So when I saw this little guy wipe like mommy, I realized that I needed to show him how little boys pee in the potty. which I did and twenty years later he hates hearing that story. LOL. Good luck!
