Has anyone played "Find the Magic Potty"?  Before you get in the car to go somewhere you have your child go to the rest room.  Once you get to your destination the game begins.  The first thing you must do when you walk into a store is find the magic potty and use it to show you found it.  This will continue if you go to multiple stores and potty again once you get home.  Silly games keep us going...hope it's helpful for someone else too!!

Potty traning has been a little  harder for my second child . she started at 17 mths and she does good for maybe three to four out of seven days of the week. I stop gving her a lot of drink. and we don't do pampers either. need help and some encouragment.

I would not limit drinks. Actually, they need drinks so they can understand the feeling of needing to go.

I thought I read no advertising on this site? so far all I've read is advice to use the 3 day method but noone said what it was just a website to look at which actually is the site to purchase the ebook for 24 dollars. if i had bought it i would have just said the method to all of you moms needing an answer. everybody in it for them selves as usual. so is anyone actually gonna give free advice? what is the 3 day method without purchasing it?

No one is advertising, or in it for themselves. Wow! This is a method that people on this group have used with great success. I am sorry that you do not know what it is. And there are many, many tips and advice throughout this entire group that you can READ through to see what might work best for you. You do not have to be so rude to the other members of this group.

Basically, you commit to three days without a diaper or pull up, taking the child to the potty at regularly scheduled intervals and rewarding them for going.
