  • my daughter was hard too. she thought if she had a pull-up on she could potty in it instead of the toliet.
    up i know that it's not the best ideal to aword them with candy cause they will always want it after they are trained.
    maybe try singing a potty song or try to make it alittle fun i guess maybe the flushing is to loud that used to scare mine so i flushed for her til she got used to it..

  • I just waited until mine turned 3. It's easier when they are a little older. They got it right away.

  • encourage but do NOT be pushy, and NEVER shame her if she has an accident just sit her on the potty and say go potty on the potty..

  • my son just turned 2...and I'm not even pushing the issue yet. he's not even interested in the potty...so, I'm not pushing it, the older he gets, I think the better he'll understand it anyhow, so, he'll be ready eventually.
