my son started at 3 years 5 months and was trained in 4 weeks.  my dd started training at 2 years 8 months and was trained in 3 weeks.

if you think he's ready, ditch the diapers while you are home for 1 week (keep him in a diaper for sleeping) and see what happens.  take him to the potty regularly and praise any and all successes.  prepare to clean up tons of accidents.  if after 1 week he isn't taking the initiative to get himself to the potty, he's not ready.  if at any point he cries or resists the potty, don't force him, he's not ready.

Sure put him on the potty when he starts to show signs. Good luck

if he's scared of the potty, he's not ready.  willingness is the key component.  is he on the adult potty or baby potty?

Two, because she wanted to go to preschool and I began tired of spending a small fortune on Pull-Ups (they were becoming like diapers). For potty training success, there must be consistency.

we trained both kids on the adult potty too.  your son isn't quite ready.  let him explore and get comfortable.  you can let him walk around bottomless at home if you want.  also, put a step stool next to the potty so he can come and go as he pleases.  just keep it fun and casual right now while he gets comfortable.
