  • Just keep asking and leave the potty chair out where she can sit on it anytime she wants. Some children are scared of it. They are leaving the comfort zone. We always had the potty chair in the living room with books by it. We let them sit on it when they wanted to. Full clothed, then every know and then we would ask if they wanted to go potty or poopy on it. We let them make the dission. Sometimes they would say yes and then as soon as you have the diaper off. They would change there mind. So then we would say ok. In time it will start to work.

  • Throw the diapers away. Give her panties and take two or three days, should be able to do on a weekend, and tell her to get it in the potty. Clean up any messes but don't fuss. If you throw the diapers out she really doesn't get a choice.

  • let her see you go to the potty and make a big deal out of it and how you're a big girl, etc.

  • put her in undies...
    stop using PUNISHMENT to potty train
    learn to give some positive response to trying, telling you she has to go, or went... and make a big HAPPY deal about it.
    punishing sends the wrong message, basically that going potty is WRONG... i would change your entire approach.
