She's right. Not only do boys tend to potty train later than girls, 2 years old is pretty young, especially if the child just turned 2. To be able to use the potty, a child must have a clear understanding of how the whole process works - something a 2 year old may not be able to do. They also have to have the ability to control their bowels and bladder. They should be able to pull their pants up and down, but that's not required if you are helping them. Most importantly, they need to want to do it! My very bright DD didn't PT until she was almost 3. There's nothing wrong with trying though! Just be positive and don't force it. If it doesn't work now, wait a couple months and try again. Good luck! Don't worry, he will PT when he's ready.
