My dd is 2.5 years old and refusing to go potty. She knows exactly what to do but just blantely refuses. I have tried taking books in with us to read stories and also put her in regular cotton panties so she could feel the yuckiness. And doesnt even phase her. We do rewards for when she doea go as well. What are some things that i can do to make going potty more fun? And yes i do know she is ready because she shows all the signs and has gone several times before.

Just ask her why she doesn't want to be helpful and use the big potty. My oldest was afraid of falling in but didn't like her training toliet so I just took her to the store one day, she picked the one she liked the best that just sits on the toliet and never had an issue again.

Bump for some advice. DD is two and a 1/4. I'm ready to start training.

I am no help since my dd was a late trainer.  Shoot my mom even was here for a week and saw that dd was not emotionally ready even though her body was physically ready.  The good news is she did not go into kindergarten using diapers and only one accident the first week of school due to having too much fun in the daily welcome routine.

I suggest waiting until she wants to do it.  My son didn't potty train until he was 3.  We tried 3 times between age 2 and 3 but when he didn't care about his acciendnts I put him back in diapers.  Then right around his 3rd birthday he said he needed to go so I sent him in by himself since he already knew everything he needed to do, and that was it.  He used the potty every time from then on.

She shows signs of readiness, but she tells you she doesn't want to, and you're still trying to make her go potty. That may backfire on you. I had DD in just panties in the house. And always asked of the needed to go to the bathroom. Eventually she started telling me when she needed to go, now she goes on her own.

I don't know, but am posting to see what others say!

My dd is 25 months and she will take off her diaper and sit on her little girl toilet every time I sit on the big girl one. But she won't go potty!

She has peed only once and I think it was just because the seat was cold!

My daughter does the exact same thing. I suggest getting a toilet ring and putting her on the actual toilet, not just a kid's potty. DD refuses to get near her kid potty but she will go on the toilet.

I would stop until she wants to.
