Desparately Needing Help with Potty Training

My son is 3 years old. I can not seem to get him to even go potty on the toilet let alone train him. He sits on the little potty but doesn't do anything. He knows when he needs to be changed and will go and get a pull-up for me. He even sometimes takes off his pull-up before he hands me a new one. My family gives me a hard time that he is not trained yet. My doctor says he will be trained in time. Any suggestions anyone may have would be greatly appreciated. I am new to this site and there may already be something out there. I am just...

Pull-ups or Panties?

My almost 2 1/2 year old is ready to potty train I think. She is showing all signs and is going to the potty occassionally. She asks to go potty all the time but doesn't always go. I've started a sticker chart but she is still wearing diapers. I was thinking at the end of this month we'd try to either go cold-turkey to panties or try pull-ups. Any advice on this? I know a lot of parents have mixed feelings on pull-ups. Thanks, N.
