The very best thing you can do is just to let it go and not even mention it. Seriously someone on here gave me this advice and boom a few weeks ago DS potty trained.

I am so glad I listened to the advice.

He just asked to go potty one day and he was instantly trained with very very few accidents.

My eldest is 4 and a half and only now just training. Don't feel bad about him being "late" to potty train. Just relax and don't turn it into a power struggle.
