I started potty training my daughter a couple of weeks before she turned 2. (I heard boys were a little harder than girls to potty train). I had to take two weeks off and work from home because my sitter at the time went on vacation. So while I was home my goal was to get her potty trained. I had her sit on the potty about 30 minutes after each meal until she went and instead of putting training diapers on her (training diapers didnt work..it was like having a diaper on)...she went commando at home and started using the potty (the big peoples potty..not the tiny little plastic one), i assume it's because she didnt want to get herself all yucky, but it worked. After 2 weeks she was potty trained and we've only had 1 accident since (she couldn't hold it long enough for us to get through a line at the restroom).
Hope that helps!
