Will potty consistently naked, refuses to go if she is wearing undies.

We are having a power struggle.  My two year old will consistently use the potty if she is naked.  If i put undies on her and say to tell me "potty" if she needs to go, she will just go in her undies and if i try sitting her on the potty and pulling her undies down, she throws a fit!  I'm trying to teach her to pull her undies down, but she seems frustrated.

Close your blinds and let her run around naked? Not sure really.

I've read a potty training book that recommended that they go naked, so I would just let her go naked for a few days if she is using the potty well.. Then maybe take her to the store and let her pick out some fun underwear. Maybe if she likes them she will want to wear them.

I have the same problem with my son only he won't wear undies at all- wont even put them on. He goes commando a lot when he is home. Well, commando while wearing my husbands tennis shoes:)

I had to go from naked, to VERY loose shorts, to underwear with my son.

How recently did she potty train? I would leave her panties off until she's comfortable using the potty and ready to wear panties.  My daughter took a couple weeks after being potty trained before she wanted to wear panties.  I only put my foot down when we were leaving the house because she obviously needed to wear panties and bottoms outside lol.

My dd did that for a little while.  She finally caught on and is potty trained now.
