My dd is 3 1/2 also and I just finally finished potty training her....the one thing I found that worked was that I told her that if she wet her pants...during the day.... she would not be allowed to play outside....one of her most favorite things to do...it took about a week and she was doing MUCH better. she has to have an initiative to use the potty. I tired potty prizes, potty dances and nothing was working until I did this....so with that in mind...find something she really enjoys doing and tell her that if she doesn't use the potty she will lose that privilege. It's hard at first because they cry and get so upset. But stick with it. Also I started taking her potty with me every time I went and talked to her about what I was doing and why I was doing it. That seemed to help her get more interested in doing it.
