My daughter is a few months over 2 and she was doing great with the potty. She would poop and pee in it as long as we reminded her and all that jazz and was really happy about it.....but she's slowly getting worse.
Now, she grabs underwear to PURPOSEFULLY go potty in them....and she wont tell you and keep them on as long as you don't say anything and screams and runs if you do. She goes #1 pretty well and will use the potty sometimes, but #2 is the real problem. She use to be just fine with it, but now she wont go unless she's hiding in a random corner and going in her undies (pull-ups or cloth doesn't matter to her). She screams bloody murder if we catch her, no matter our attitude, and try to get her into the bathroom to either go in the toilet or wipe her.
I've tried so many different things and I just don't know what to do. We have a little potty and a big potty; we've tried books, candy, toys, yelling, time-outs, praise, clapping, sitting for hours, leaving the bathroom, I spent a whole week showing her the digestive system and potty-time videos, we bring her around other kids that go potty, etc etc.
I hate to say, but I think that even though she had acted like she was ready, I don't think she was and I wish we would have waited. Its too late now though, its not like I can just say "Sure! Go potty in your pants! That's fine!"....
