My dd is almost 4 and she has been fully potty-trained since, I think it was about 2.5 years old. It was seriously like some sort of switch was turned on. So, I agree with just being consistent, supportive, and not pressuring. We spent many months taking her every hour or something, and then sitting with her while she sat on the potty for like 30 minutes and not going. We bought her own little potty and a seat for the big one so she would have a choice, and she always changing her mind. It was very frustrating. So we stopped really trying and just let her tell us.

I truly attribute the PT succes to seeing other kids do it! She started going to daycare 2x a week at 18 months old. When she moved to the 2 year old class, they help with the PT. And she was doing it, sometimes. But mainly still in diapers or pull ups. But it really clicked after a little girl she sometimes played with, who is younger than her, was using the potty in PUBLIC places and she saw her use the restroom at Chic-fil-a. After she saw that, she was like, "Hey, I can do that too!" and made me take her. She was still asking me for a diaper for #2. (that was fun!) Then she started going #2 at home, but refused to use the big potty and refused to go #2 anywhere but home. Eventually I convinced her that she was making "big girl" poops and needed to use the "big girl" toilet. After a few months of that she started at a new daycare, fulltime, and one day her teacher said, "Oh, no she goes here now too. She's a big girl!"

She will have the occasional accident, 2 very recently and 1 that I was SOOOOOmad about! (all over the couch!!#$%&*!#) But it really is wonderful when they are able to just go by themselves!

And now we have a baby boy, 1 year old. I am NOT looking forward to PT again, especially with a boy. How do we teach them to hold down their pee-pee if they don't see Mommy doing it? Oh, and my friend's son is about turn 4 and he still sits down too! My friend says it is b/c her husband won't take him in the bathroom when he goes and show him what to do, said it freaks him out, lol.
