Well..... I tried starting to potty train my son at 2.... yeah.... no go. He was NOT ready. FF a year and a half later.... he FINALLY decided he was ready. I tried and tried in those 18 months which led to nothing but frustration and me pulling a lot of my own hair out by its roots. Seriously, though.... she will probably let you know when she's ready. Books, videos, talking about it. Letting her watch when you use the bathroom, etc....but don't push it, it will only make you more frustrated and angry in the end (at least such is the case with me). We actually started putting him on the potty at night and first thing in the morning and that seemed to do the trick. One morning he told me, I don't want to wear a diaper anymore. I want to wear chonies. And that was it. A couple of accidents later he was potty trained. #2 was another whole story, but it got there.
