How do I get her to use the potty at home?

My daughter is going to be three this coming Febuary and she has been potty training at home and day care for a little less then a year. When she is at day care she will go without a problem and not have to change from her pull-up so they are thinking of putting her in underware but the problem is that as soon as she gets home she will not tell us when she needs to go and will go in her pull-up. At home i have to chase her down just so she can sit there and try but she will not go until i put the pull-up on. I don't know what to do i tried rewards like stickers or ice cream for when she goes through the day with just a couple of accidents since i know there will still be accidents and she has her own little potty. i just need advice on how to get her to use the potty at home and not do it in her pull-ups.

  • Dont put her in the pullups. take her to the store with you, have her help pick out some pretty princess undies and let her know "yay! we get to wear pretty undies and use the potty at home!" you will have to clean up accidents but thats part of potty training. in a few days shell catch on.
