My son is going to be 2 years old in 3 weeks. I bought a potty seat to start training soon but I'm not sure if he is ready. He does hide when he poops. This is the scariest part for me. And I am a first time mom. Please help?

Perhaps the best way to potty train a boy is the same way as for a girl .... with lots of patience and encouragement, take all the time you need and don't stress about the housework not getting done while you're teaching him the most important lesson of his entire life. Be happy with him - the housework won't run away.

When i trained my sons to go potty i took their nappies off n they followed their dad in2 toilet watched him n away they went. A tip if u wanna try stop the pee from missin bowl throw a marble in2 toilet n tell him 2 aim 4 that like a game. My boys also used a tree out bak wen it was hotter months.Worked well 4 us. Good luck with it hope i was some kinda help

i have 3 boys 19, 17 and 3 and 2 is just the right age for them if u have a man around have him take him to the bathroom everytime he goes to the bathroom so he can see how big boys go to the potty if u dont have a man around girl you going to have to learn how to pee standing up lol no u can take him everytime u go and have him sit on his potty while mommy sits on hers and when he gets a little older u can show him how big boys stand up n do it. And dont forget to reward him when he do good. good luck
