Ok so my sister in law and I have toddlers 3 weeks apart. She has a boy and I have a girl. She is potty training her son, by putting him on the potty every 1/2 hour. I however am not putting my daughter on the potty unless she asks. They are both 2 years old. Her son pees on the potty alot, my daughter has never actually gone but just sat on the potty. My mother in law said that I should put her on the potty like my sister in law does every 1/2 hour.
Now I disagree with this because I don't feel like that is "training" but more like preventing an accident.
What do you guys think?

I have worked in childcare for over 10 years now. I have helped potty train several children. What we do is once the potty training starts, they wear pull ups for the first week or two (sometimes shorter or longer depending on the child). We then take them to potty about every 30 minutes to an hour depending on the child. The reason for this is not to prevent accidents but to help the child become in tune with the bodies and help them recognize when they have to go potty. Once they have done that for a week or two then they move to big girl/boy underwear. Again, depending on the child, we took them every 30 minutes to an hour. Once they got the hang of it, we would then take them every 1-1 1/2 hours and then every 1 1/2-2 hours or when they told us that they needed to go. This system worked best for our situation. However, every child is different and only you know your daughter best.
