So I have identical twin boys and one twin is almost completely potty trained. But the other twin wants nothing to do with it. i figured that that since they did everything else together that this would be the same... anyone have the same problem or some solutions?

We had the same problem. It took me about 3 months to realize I just needed to focus on the one child willing to potty train and then worry about potty training the other. It gave him a break and when I was done with his brother he was a little more willing to learn. I just tried to use positive reinforcement. If they peed in the pot they got 1 m&m if they pooped they got 2 m&m's. Kids aren't always ready at the same time. Just give them a little break and try again in a month or two. Just praise the other child pottying and they will be more willing to follow suit.
