My daughter is 2 1/2 and is throwing a fit right now because I told her she had to leave her diaper off and wear either training pants or panties because she's going to go potty in the potty today.
She has fought this and fought this. I have avoided pressing the issue because I didn't want to hurt her feelings or traumatize her or anything, but she's 2 years and 7 months old and has only pottied in the potty once of her own accord. She always wants the reward (a sticker) but she doesn't want to potty. She absolutely refuses to use the potty. I already had to stop using her cloth diapers because she was getting horrible rashes and nothing I did stopped them, and she's quickly growing out of the size 5 diapers that we've been buying.
Is it a bad thing to start to push this issue? She is developmentally ready, she knows what the potty is, she sees mommy pottying... but she refuses to do it.
What do I do here? Do I let her get her way and keep wearing diapers until she decides it's finally effing time or do I push this issue and get her trained?
The other issue is that she will probably be entering day-care soon, and they usually want kids potty trained by this age. If she's not potty trained then she will have to be in a class with much smaller kids than her.
