OK...so my daughter turned 3 in March - I started potty training her in February....she fully understands what she's supposed to do....she's done it with tons of praise...however, she now refuses to poop on the potty! She will go in her pants....so I tried no pants at all until she does it and gets the hang of it for awhile....right??? WRONG! She did it IN HER BED yesterday! BLACH! So after trying every positive reinforcement trick in the book, my former Pediatrician suggested I take a close toy away...so I did - but that didn't seem to "hit" her hard enough (and I have to say - this is one stubborn child). So today I took her beloved blanket away and WHAM! It worked! Not mean - just took it and said she could have it back when she pooped...which she did about a 1/2 hr later. My question is: is this too harsh???? Can you offer me anything - besides "she'll do it in her time..." That's getting soooo OLD!!! :o)Answer Question

When my 3.5 yo starts regressing, and having what I call "deliberates" not accidents, he he, I get a pull up. She absolutely HATES wearing a pull up since getting big girl undies over a year ago. If she doesn't go to the toilet she wears one. Since starting that, accidents have pretty much stopped. My problem now is her waiting until the LAST POSSIBLE minute to get on that toilet.
