he stays dry wearing pull ups for most of the day, but when I put him on the potty or ask if he's ready to use the potty....the tantrums start. If I do get him on the potty, he's there for a few minutes and nothing happens. Any suggestions??Answer Question

Ok well I would NEVER suggest hitting a child for fearing potty use. Some kids take longer than others to train. Have you tried a sticker chart or awarding an M&M for going pee? Those are the little steps we took to get our DD to START using the potty. They worked very well.

I know this sound a bit out there.... but I've seen it work 100% of the time. (8 kids age 2-2.5) There are these new anatomically correct dolls which actual 'poo and pee'. So you tell your child that the doll needs to go potty and show them to doll doing its busy. Then cheer and throw a party for the doll. Each time I've seen this work (which consistent use) in 1-2 weeks. The next stage is your child telling you when the doll has to go. And finally the child taking the doll in to show the doll how he/she can go potty also. It's worth a try, and there are more expensive and less expensive options.
