My daughter turned 2 in November. So she's 26 months old, and showing signs that she is ready for potty training:
-loves to sit on the potty when I go (with pants on)
-has brought me diapers when she wants to be changed
-tells me, "I pooped", immediately following a BM
However, I've started the "every 20 minutes" routine with her (setting the timer for every 20 minutes and taking her each time it goes off), and she screams bloody murder if when I pull her pants down and sit her on her potty.
I have tried distractions, like singing and even bribed her with pieces of candy (not a good idea, I know and stopped). Reading a story seems to help slightly... I can get her mind off of what's happening somewhat, but she's constantly on the verge of crying. Thoughts?
