Remove his clothing from the waist down while he plays in the backyard or around the home. This can help him make the connection between "feeling and going". When you notice signs he needs to go, gently ask him “Go peepee?” or “Go poop?” to give him the words he can use to describe what he feels. Spend some time helping him become familiar with the potty training process. Toddlers often resist change of any type and the move from using a diaper to using the toilet is a big one. Read books about the potty, sing songs and watch movies. Let him watch you or a playmate use the toilet so he can become more familiar with the process. Good luck to you, this can be tough.
