He will get excited about going to the the potty but once in the bathroom, he gets so excited about his surroundings that he doesn't actually ever use the toilet. I have spent so many days being consistent in the "make him go every 15 min " he just will not do so. any advice?????

He might not be ready yet. I don't like the every 15 min or 30 min thing....that is u being trained not him. Look at potty training as teaching not training. Follow his lead. It is just like walking or reading. ..they figure it out but on their own time. Just like walking and reading u first start with the basics. U first have to learn ur letters and sounds before u can read a word same with potty training. First he has to learn how it all works before he can start putting it all together. Encourage but don't push.

Thanks Sarah, he will be starting classes soon to try and help us both work together. I guess since the general idea is that he should have already been potty trained is etched in my brain. Hopefully soon tho :)
