  • with my daughter as soon as she started showing signs we took her in and sat on the potty every 2 hours and as soon as she started getting the hang of it and going when we took her we took her every hour to avoid accidents. before we knew it she understood the feeling and was going on her own. you may have to sit there for a few minutes especially in the beginning so keep some books or something in there for her to look at while she sits. and when she goes make a big show out of it! dance and sing and say what a big girls she is you will feel silly but shell think its great and want to do it again. i never did the reward system with candy or anything because then they expect em each time and only go because they want the reward. i suppose stickers would work if she likes that but i didnt want to have to retrain when we quit doing rewards

  • Try one hour a day potty training sessions.Bring out the potty chair...bring out the big girl panties. Make a great big deal out of it.ASk her if she would like to potty train today.Let her pick out the panties she will wear and let her run around the house in the panties and a shirt. Explain that when she feels like she needs to pee pee or poo poo she should sit on the potty. Of course, the first few times, shes going to most likely have an accident on the floor.When this happens say "Oh, I see you've had an peed on the floor because you don't have on a __________(diaper)" Let her fill in the blank. Say, Now, next time, you feel like you have to pee, you can sit and do it on the potty! yay! As the sessions become more successful, you can increas to 3 sessions a day. A sticker reward chart along with this is wonderful. Good Luck!
