Is there something wrong with her?

What do you mean she won't even try? Are you not her mother? Why haven't you asserted your authority over her?

Just get going on it. Get a rewards chart and start it up. Good luck

What have you tried? Is there anything she is really into? Maybe you could use that as motivation? Take the pull-ups away and make her clean herself up... Wait unless she has a learning disability or something.

Is she also slow in other ways?  (not being ignorant, just asking)

Unless she has a disability there is no excuse to be almost 6 and still in diapers/pull ups. Take her to the doctor to make sure there isn't a bladder issue somewhere.

That's just laziness there IMO. Put her in panties and tell her if she doesn't go to the potty she has to clean the mess herself.

No she's not slow in other ways, she just refuses to do it. I have bribed her with candy, toys, icecream and she won't go for it. I put big girl undies on her and she will just pee/poop herself like she is wearing a diaper and carry on her merry way and just not care. Ughhh I don't know what todo
