  • Maybe have your husband start going with you and slowly taking over so she gets used to it.

  • Sticker bribery can work wonders!

  • Nothing works bribery wise for me.....she just screams bloody murder when I put her on the potty.

  • My son is doing the same thing, he will go accident free at daycare and he even tells her but he will Never tell us = he could care less about rewards or charts we've tried or even bribes, My provider said he is testing the boundries with me but I don't know why - or what to do about it - she said to just be patient but he can go without diapers or accidents all day - then we get home and its pee underpants and poop underpants all night ugh... he can't wear pulls ups because of allergies and I am supposed to only put him in diapers at bedtime so he doesn't go backwards.... I dont know.. good luck mommy
