First of all, boys take longer than girls and he will go when he is ready :) But there are plenty of things you can do to help him along :) My son was really nervous too, so I made flushing funny. Every time someone would flush I would start laughing and saying "listen to that funny sound!" It got him interested and showed him I wasn't scared, so he shouldn't be. My son is obsessed with toy cars and they are about a dollar, so I started by putting a brand new one still in the package on the back of the potty and let him notice it every day. I told him once he peed in the potty, he could open it. I didn't push it and eventually he caved and gave it a try. I cheered for him and laughed when he flushed and opened the car for him. We did that a few times and switched to mnm's. Good luck!
