I bought a potty around your son's age and put it in the rest room, I told my son what it was for, and he wasn't too keen on the idea, so I'd let him sit on it when he wanted too, and never forced it.
He finally got to the point where he wouldn't stay in a wet pamper and told me as soon as he peed on himself and wanted a diaper, so we had the potty talk again, and bought under wear. He wouldn't pee in his under wear, so....
But he would not poop in the potty. he was so scared , and would ask for a pull up, which we did for quite a while I am embarrased to say, until just recently and he is almost 4....
My youngest is almost 3 and is just now potty trained..... he has been peeing in the potty because he saw his brother do it, but would go back in a diaper..... I finally told both of them that was it, I wasn't buying any more pull-ups and it was the potty or their under wear. He took it like a champ, and has done amazing!
