My daughter is 3 years old and refuses to be potty trained she has all the signs of going being pt but she refuses she hold her pee/poop in for more than 5 hours and then will just go hide in a corner and pee what should i do? is this normal?
3 hours is too long for a 3 year old to go without going to the bathroom. Try more frequent visits to the bathroom

i know 3 hours it long i put her on the toilet starting out at every 30 minutes and an hour in half passed by and i knew she had to go so i put her on every 10-15 but she held it in every time and it was going on six hours since she had pee'd she just gave up and hid
Do you have a diaper on her? My daughter and I just went through the same thing! I found if I left her naked and made her sit on the potty with a book she would go. I used one of the "I spy" books for toddlers. It took a while to get through it...she would relax enough to pee. Then I would reward her with M&M's...acted like a fool, dancing around and all...This way I could start with alot and as it became "routine" I could lessen the reward. Then as she got good I added panties...then pants...and so on...if she had an accident left the panties on for a bit so she would get uncomfortable with wet panties on. She had 2 accidents and that was it.
