  • How old is she - not in years - in months. There is a big difference between 24, 30, and 35 months. A 24 month old may not care about a sticker chart, an older 2 may love it.

    And was she ready? If not, you just have to keep taking her at set times until she is ready. Or you can wait until she is ready and then restart.

  • I PUT A LIL BANK NEXT TO THE TOILET- AND EACH TIME WE TINKLE- WE GET A COUPLE COINS! DIMES OR NICKLES- AND WHEN WE MAKE A MASTERPEICE! YOU GET A COUPLE BIG COINS!(QUARTERS!) THEY GET TO PUT IT IN THE BANK AND IT MOTIVATED THEM TO GO AS OFTEN AS THEY CAN!! AT THE END OF THE WEEK- TAKE EM TO THE STORE AND LET THEM USE THE PIGGYBANK MONEY TO GET WHAT THEY WANT- YOU'D BE SURPRISED HOW QUICK A 2YR OLD WILL CATCH ON! MY OLDEST IS 14 AND MISSES THOSE DAYS! I ALSO PAID MY KIDS A DOLLAR FOR EACH TOOTH THAT CAME OUT- I KEPT THEM ALL!!LISTED WITH THE CHILDS NAME AND DATE OF TOOTH COMING OUT! GOOD LUCK
