So...... my son is 3 1/2 yrs old. And this week is his spring break from pre-school so I figured now would be a good a time as any to tackle potty training.... however he will not go on the potty.... He will sit on the potty for the most part I've been having him go every half hour. But he just holds it... from the time he woke up this morning he held it until he went down for his nap (I even kept him up from his nap an hour later than usual HOPING he would finally go) and He jsut went in his pull up at nap time and then he hasnt gone since he woke up and it's been aobut 4 hours now!! So this is day 2 of him just holding it.... does that mean he isnt ready to potty train? I mean I think its a GREAT sign that he can hold it, but i dont know how to get him to understand that he is supposed to go on the potty, I let him pick out a treat at the store (hershey kisses) that he can have when he potties, but still nothing :(Answer Question

He is old enough. He may need a big incentive. One of my sons wasn't interested in potty training. We were at Target and he wanted a Big Wheel. I told him if we didn't have to buy diapers we could buy the Big Wheel. He never went in a diaper again. We went and got the Big Wheel.
Going to pre-school may be a problem. Even older kids don't want to go to the bathroom at school. He may not want to go to the bathroom at pre-school. Some people call day care pre-school. If this is some kind of program that will get over soon you may want to wait until then.
