  • She may be too young. My daughter will go potty sometimes, but not every time. She turned 2 in April. Just keep encouraging her to use the potty and reward her when she does.

  • Put the toliet in front of the tv or somewhere she likes to sit. Have her sit on it while doing one of her activites. This way she will realize that going on the potty is not that bad after she does. Of course reward her when she does go on the potty.

  • First of all let her sit there as long as it takes or as long as she can without getting antsy. Secondly every time you change her diaper talk about how she could have avoided this discomfort if she had gone on the potty. Be consistent but friendly about it.
