  • You have to continue to work with her & help her to learn to do it. The more consistent you are the more of a habit it will become for her. Teaching & training little ones takes dedication & consistency.over many years. They have short attention spans & tend to forget some things easily. Just be patient & stick with it.

  • At 3 you should be with her. Supervise and practice, practice practice. It will come to her in time. You need to be consistent until then.

  • Very few 3 year olds can do a good job anyway, you need to be on top of her. My son is always 5 and I still check from time to time , especially if I know he's had something with some dairy in it because I know that's a tough clean up job.

  • You should be with her, or someone who is willing to work with her.
