Easiest way to potty train a 2 yr old boy???

Our 2 yr old son, will go pee in the potty. Sometimes. He shows interest in going to the potty, and has no problem going pee when he is on it. However, there are a lot of times he just doesn't want to go. Our 5 yr old kind of potty trained himself, because of watching his 7 yr old brother years back. But, our 2 yr old is just being stubborn. Ugh! lol Any help is greatly appreciated!

  • 3 day potty training method. basically, you get rid of the pullups and never look back. i used it for ds1 and about to use it for ds2. it worked for us!

  • With my 2yo, we just set the timer every 30 mins and tried to pee. He got a treat every time he peed. (We used M&M's because he LOVES chocolate, but I'd just use whatever their fav treat is.) Oh, we just went right from diapers to underwear.

  • I get this question from lots of parents. Many children are really more into the "power" of it! I just answered a very similar question for a parent today. Here's the link. Hope you find it helpful!
