3 1/2 yr old holds her pee

Having the most difficult time with my daughter.  She cannot seem to sit down and just pee.  She will hold it ALL DAY until she cannot any more, then she has an accident.  She has never once actually sat down on the potty and let it out.  She cries and tells me she doesn't know how to let it out.  She actually yells "Pee, come out".   I don't know what to do at this point - does anyone have any ideas?  Someone suggested to me tickling her while she was sitting on the potty or running water - neither has helped.

Sounds like she doesn't know how to control her bladder muscles yet.

You may want to try this option and see if she can have success this way: http://www.cafemom.com/journals/read/1182517/3_Day_Potty_Training.
