She has been potty trained since July. She has started occasionally wetting in her pants because she gets involved in playing and doesn't stop to go to the bathroom. when I ask her if she peed in her pants, she says yes then gleefully says "I get timeout". So here we are, timeout is not a punishment anymore. I don't spank and she's only 2.5 years old. what other punishments do you have in mind? She doesn't watch much tv and is content to just sit in a chair until told to get up...

I agree punishment should never be involved in this part of growing. At this age it happens. I also think the firstÂ answer is the best so far. My son is almost 5 and i have to remind him to go potty sometimes. He hasn't wet his pants in a long time. But he does get preoccupied playing and holds it for along time. what my ex-husband and i did to get our little one started is we made a chart (you can buy them too) and we had stickers of his fave characters eg Spongebob. every time he potted he got a sticker and he made a check mark beside it. He thought it was fun he put the sticker on the square and got to "color". This help us also keep track of how many times a day/night he was going.Â
