agree about the control thing
more you push now- more she will not do it
sounds like a strong little female (stubborn)
have to find way that it is her idea
sticker chart... make one and place a sticker every time YOU go potty--lol
stickers did not work for me and mine, daughter lost interest in a day
so i did naked potty training
put her in long T shirt dress and nothing else
when she had to go, she had choice of having it run down her leg or use the potty
she hated the feeling of it running down leg, she she had no other choice
here is hoping you have either a sticker lover, or a wetness down the leg hater
step back and try again in a couple months
ignoring tantrums works, so ignoring her control over this might too
MANY kids are trained after 3- not the end of the world, you are almost there, hang in there and do not make it a control thing between the two of you

She's not ready. Period. Stop pushing or she will push back! It's not about you, it's about her. The worst thing you can do at this point is punish her for this!!!

She's not ready
best indicators: she hides everytime she defecates. she asks you to change her (wet or poo). she shows intense interest in what you are doing in the bathroom. she wants to go into the bathroom like mommy and daddy
when you have these indicators then you begin to toilet train. i like the three day method.

Honestly, if she's not ready, she's not ready. It's not about what you want, but what she is ready to do.
She is 2.5 and going potty is one of the things that she can control. Running away and hiding to go is about her control. And there isn't much you can do but look like it doesn't matter.
Also look for the signs that she is ready. The major ones being dry through long periods of time (like nap or while playing for a long time) and telling you that she has to potty.

potty in the living room in front of the tv if she watches shows at all?
She won't poop in her diaper forever- I wouldn't push it too much right now. Too much pushing on them now makes it take longer.

She's not ready. My daughter didn't train until she was 4. My son 3. When they were ready they showed signs and we went from there.

waiting until she is ready- she will train in no time
pushing when she is not, stress for you, and many accidents
try the end of summer
and but some new BIG GIRL undies with favorite characters on them
if she hates it running down her leg- she will use the potty
girls are usually better at this than boys, some boys enjoy the hose option way too much
ignore her control issues and attack again in a couple months
Summer just starting, and depending on the weather in your area- naked potty training is best in warm moths
good luck, no worries- most children are not trained by age the parents state, and it is NOT a race
there is NO cafemom award for earliest trained child :)

I agree if she is not ready she is not ready. she will do it on her own she's still little

My son was the same way. He knew how to go potty on a toilet, but he refused. So I waited until he was 3; it's amazing what 6 months or more will do. It a world of difference.

Oh and I potty trained him the same way as fiatpax.
