  • i has my bathroom door closed so you can't see the potty during the day time, and about every 20 mins, i ask her if she has to go pee...and then i say "oh no the potty is gone, Can you help Mommy Find the potty?" And she takes my hand and shows me where the potty is then she goes pee pee.
    Or you can turn on the tap while she is on the potty the running water makes my dd pee. then when she do go pee give her a reward for a peice of candy or cookie, every time she do use the potty, and when she gets used to it, she slowly back her of the treats.
    Good luck mama!
