  • I watched Super Nanny and got great tips from her.  I love that woman, lol.  It is definitely frustrating!  The tip that worked for me is leaving them in the wet panties for just a minute before changing them.  The feeling is different.  Maybe that will work for you too!  :)

  • You might go back to taking her to the potty every 30 minutes or so and explain why you are doing so

  • Just relax....any emotional outburst from u will just make it worse. She has probably just noticed that going to the potty takes away precious playtime which is a bummer for a toddler. Let her experience the consequences of her actions with dignity and respect. If it happens during an outing or playdate...then the playdate or outing is over. If it happens at home...hand her new panties and pants and tell her she needs to change before she can go back to playing so she doesn't get her toys dirty. If she doesn't know how to dress herself....teach her during a calm period over the next couple of weeks. The idea is that it should be easier for her to go in the potty and less time consuming than going in her panties. I've been struggling with the same thing...tried several this approach in a book and it seems to be working.

  • I think you should make her change herself. I know that it worked for a friend of mine after six years of trying to potty train but every child is different you can try taking toys away every time it does it or you can give her a treat after she potties in the chair.
