how on earth do you potty train a 4 year old girl? she refuses to use the potty and we tried almost every trick there is.

we've tried rewards and running around naked and putting on the big girl panties and telling her she can't go in them. she doesn't care.

  • when she wake up in the morning, put her potty chair in the living room or where she plays, have her sit there until she goes, don't let get up until she go, she can play, eat watch tv. whatever, just keep her on it until she go. good luck.
