I don't agree with just waiting around, probably because one of my friends currently can't send her unpotty trained boy to kindergarten, and she's realizing maybe she should have done something before now. Yeah, you think? You can encourage potty training without forcing. Kids can physiologically be done with potty training by 3. Occasionally, one might need a bit longer, but the trend now is to do nothing and let the kids just make all the rules. No. When they can feel that they are going potty, they are more than capable of putting it in the potty.
Just put her in underwear. Don't stress about accidents, because they happen. It's your job as a parent to encourage and support. if you get frustrated, it'll set her back. You have to just matter of factly handle accidents and move on.
