She'll be 3 next month. I had tried to train her a few months ago but she lost interest. Now I'm trying again because she seems to be much more interested. She's excited about it. We have a potty seat. The problem is, when she poops in her pants she goes into another room by herself and I ask her"Are you pooping? You need to go to the potty" She shouts"No! Get out of here!" lol because she doesn't want to be interrupted during her pooping time. Immediately after that she will come to me and announce she needs changed, that she has pooped. If I try to carry her to the potty when she's pooping, she will have a total meltdown. However, she doesn't mind sitting on the potty any other time, as long as it's not during poop time. She has never gone in the potty. While she's sitting the potty, what kinds of things should I say to help her go? I thought girls were supposed to be easier to train? My ds wasn't this difficult.

My experience has been the opposite. My boy was extremely afraid of going poop in his toilet. But he had already been peeing in his for months. My girl got a pretty pink toilet and Tinkerbell underwear and that was the end of that, lol. Where is the potty located? I finally found out with my son that he just wanted to do his business in private. I moved his toilet to a more "private" area, and he was more comfortable going like that.

Awesome idea! I forgot that part. Hub and I did the "happy dance" every time my son went poop on the toilet. My daughter didn't need all that, lol. She won't even own up to a fart. The downside is that my 5 year old son still announces that he has pooped and expects recognition and praise, ha ha!

Do you live alone/with people you trust where you could let her be nakey? We left our boy to be nakey. The feeling was so unusual of not pooping in a diaper that he started yelling when he had to poop.

Babe that's awesome but that doesn't mean she will be ahead in everything. I know it's mind boggling when you know they CAN do something and have the intelligence to do something but then they don't, lol. Does she have underwear that she really likes? Maybe telling her that her favorite characters don't want to be pooped or peed on would help!
