Potty Training: Are there any reasons not to potty train a two year old?

There are occasionally times when potty training is just not appropriate. If the family is going through a major change like a move, divorce or a sibling leaving the household, it's best to let things settle first before adding the stress of potty training. It's also best not to start potty training if a new baby is on the way. Some kids are very sensitive and won't train well if there is a small change.
