A 2 year old boy can be toilet trained but don't be surprised if they don't succeed for a while. Some kids aren't physically able to accomplish this because their bladder and colon muscles aren't strong enough and they have trouble controlling them.

Get them interested and excited about toilet training with DVDs and books. Start a routine of putting them on the toilet at certain times every day (first thing in the morning, before and after meals, before and after naps, before bath, and before bed). Buy big kid underwear and tell them how they're a big kid now. Praise efforts and for them sitting there. Reward if you choose to.
