Don't push it. The harder you push the issue, the harder and longer he'll push back. Chances are you started too early and when you start too early it often takes a lot longer. Also, this is something that your son has control over. He's at the age where he wants to be in control of something and it appears this is it. If he WANTED to potty train, he would. He just doesn't want to. Put him back in diapers and back off. Guaranteed he'll do it on his own by the summer. Don't fall victim to the PullUps crutch. That's all they are, a crutch. Using those tells your son that it's still alright to pee and poop in his pants. Either it's all or nothing. Diaper or underwear. But, I'd say put him back in DIAPERS and see how long it takes for him to get tired of being a BABY and start using the potty. Worked for my son! He REFUSED to use the potty. I knew he could do it, he just refused. A week in diapers did the trick.
