YES its a start...well go shopping for a potty with him let him pic one. and get pullups they are wonderous! and just take him every few to the potty and sit him down and explain to him what yall are doing. if he has a man figure tell him to help out more too

Buy a potty chair and see if he has interest in it. My dd had a chair for years before she was ready.

I just have a little potty handy and wait for them to do it themselves. Works seamlessly :).

I would start with a potty chair. My dd will be two in May and since last Fall we have had one in our bathroom and she pees on it a lot actually and is now starting to take her diaper off and tell us! I think these are all signs and after her second birthday I am diving in head first lol!

 he's interested so yes it's a good way to introduce the potty.  I would lot overpower him as it can turn them off of the idea.  putting cheerios in the potty is a fun way to teach him to pee with his own little step stool.

thats how my daughter showed an interest in potty training, she'd insist on flushing for me everytime I went. she very quickly got excited to get her own little potty seat :P

Buy a potty training book. ('A potty for me' is the most effective book I've seen, the one finally worked on my DD), take him to the bathroom with you / daddy, then go buy a potty with him. The key is to get him really excited about the potty before you actually get him one... Give him some nakey time during the day every day and wait for him to do it in his own time.

My DD didn't even go once until she was 3! And I bought her potty when she was about 20 months ( too early and she had 0 interest in it)..
