I have 5 kids, all were different.

My oldest was 16 months old, and trained herself.  Mostly because she was always naked :-)  She never had an accident.

My next, a boy, was trained at about 2 1/2.  He liked to pee outside by a tree.  He did like to hide his poopy undies in the toybox though.

Next son was 2ish.  My mom trained him, because I was in college and she watched him.  They both had nighttime accidents until they were 5 though, on occasion.

My next child, a girl, we force trained when she was 2 1/2.  I know, that's terrible.  But I was fixing to have baby 5, and didn't want 2 in diapers again.  when I say "forced" I mean we ridiculed her and called her a baby when she had accidents.  I also made her sit on the potty until she went.  I don't recommend this.  It's very mean. 

My last child, a boy, we let train on his own.  He was well over 3 before completely trained.  He just didn't care to go.  And after what I did to his sister, I wasn't forcing it.  He did get there though.  He's 6, and still has nighttime accidents, although very rarely.

My point is, nobody can give you an exact on this.  Every kids is different.  And they'll all get there eventually, on their own timetable.  After raising my own, and working daycare forever, I an tell you that most kids aren't totally trained until 3 anyway.  Not all, but most,
