  • 2 1/2 is still young- no need to push it.

  • Thats what I thought but my mother in law said all 4 of her boys were pottyy trained by now and has been pushing us to make him go!

  • Each child is different. He will let you know when he is ready. Pushing will only make it take longer. Good luck with the mother in law.

  • When he is really ready, he will probably do it in a day. He is still young. As someone else said, if you push it only takes longer.

    Remember too that your MIL's memory may not be exact either.
