Potty training

My son has recently started ripping his diaper off and peeing on the floor. Twice he's ripped off his diaper and there has been poo in it. Do you think he's ready for trying to be potty trained? He's 26 months old but he's still not talking so I'm unsure if he will understand what I need him to do. Any suggestions would be helpful.

    My son is 18 months old and we have just started potty training him. He doesn't have the words yet to let me know that he needs to go potty but it is more about getting him used to it right now. The other day he ran into the bathroom, sat down on his little potty chair and went pee. He was wearing his underwear but I counted it as a step in the right direction. I have been trying to learn to pick up on his cues that he is going and so far it is going pretty good. They always seem to have their own little way to communicate even without the words. Just be super consistent with it and he should do great.
    The ripping the diaper thing was the final straw for me too. It's so nasty! lol
      We have a huge living room that is gated off from the rest of the house. Do you think if I put a potty chair in the living room and showed him how to use it that he might be curious enough to try? Of course if he did I would dump and sanitize as soon as he was done seeing how it I would be in the living room. Rig ht now I have the cleanest wood floors around because I actually get ion my hands and knees and clean the floors when he pees on them. LOL
      That might be a good idea. He might not have words to tell you he has to go but of it's there he may just use it. I have a toy too that is only for potty time too. He knows right where it is and that he can't have it unless he is sitting on the potty.
        I agree with the previous suggestions. I've not had to confront this yet, so I don't have a whole lot of advice here.
