So my DD is 4 years old and still not even remotely potty trained. I've tried every trick in the book, talked to her pedia, talked to my therapist and every mother on earth. I don't know what to do. She won't tell me why she won't potty although after a long Q and A she shook her head "yes" when I asked her if she was scared of the potty. I don't know if it's because we scolded her awhile back when she wouldn't go potty or if it's because my mother told her "the potty wants to eat her poo poo and pee pee," and now she is afraid the toilet might eat her or something. When I asked why she is afraid of he potty she won't tell me.
I've tried the little potties, the potty seat add on, begging, star charts, rewards, bribery, making her wear panties (she just pees in them and doesn't care.), potty dances, the works. She won't even sit on the toilet and if I try to put her on it she stiffens up and cries. I'm at the end of my rope ladies. Please, please, please, any advice would be greatly appreciated. I really am out of ideas and I don't know what I'm gonna do when it is time for her to go to school. TYIA ladies!
