if he shows no signs, then he isnt ready! this is something that needs to be child-led. If you "force" the child to learn something he isnt ready for there will be a constant power struggle. But since he is 2, and can absorb more information now, you could start teaching the basics. Buy some potty dvd's and potty books (many are aimed towards the younger crowd), do some show and tell when you go to the bathroom (narrate what you are doing and why in simple repetitive terms). Next time he pees/poops in his diaper tell him what he did so he can connect the dots. Join a potty training group on here! there are many resources and they are very helpful!
