(cont'd)... If you keep showing him, calmly, and clean up a few messes, and have him sit on the potty at times he's likely to go (like after a meal, after and before sleep), he will most likely start to get it. You can reinforce it with lots of praise and a small reward if you really find it necessary. But I've trained two at that age, and they don't really respond to rewards and bribery like a 2.5 year-old will. But they do aim to please you. Just know that it's a process, and try to put yourself in his shoes. As soon as you can, move away from the diaper, avoid pull-ups, don't be afraid of accidents and try not to get too frustrated, and just be consistent. Good luck!
