    Yes, he WILL train whn he's ready. The fact that he's still in diapers at 2 years 9 months doesn't mean he'll still be in diapers at 5. 2 1/2-3 1/2 years is the usual range, so he has another year before he'd even remotely be considered 'late.'

    The fact that you 'want him' trained doesn't mean that he is ready to be trained. And the more you try to force him, the more resistant he'll become. Imprisoning him on the potty until he pee's is just plain cruel.

    (Bribery is also useless if he's not physically able to do what you are asking. Is it fair to him to offer him prizes that he cannot possibly win?)

    Forget about it for now. He may be ready in a month, or six months or a year. And when he IS ready, it will go quickly and easily.

    Make it fun. I have a son with severe speech delays along with several other issues, and rewarding him with stickers on a piece of paper taped in front of his "potty" worked great. In fact, that was the only thing that worked for us. Praise works wonders with children. Be sure not to scold him, or to make him afraid to use the potty. Once you instill any fear into him, or make him uncomfortable, he will not go. Another thing, maybe he wants some privacy, try shutting the door, or just leaving it cracked open, that may help as well. With my son, peeing in his potty took about a month, but pooping in it took several months. We finally curbed his pooping by refusing to give him a diaper. He really didn't like the feel of soiled "big boy" pants. Sure, its messy, but I feel that that is what finally convinced him that the potty is the better choice.

    He doesn't need to be potty traded before he starts pre-school.

    Actually, it'll be better for you to wait until he has begun pre-school and has settled in. Otherwise you may find you get him trained, and then he get set way back by the sudden change to his routine.

    And the pre-school will work with you to get him traded. With the same routine at home and pre-school he'll find it much easier - its just a case of waiting until he has settled in.
