My little girl is over 2 years over and im finding it really hard to potty train her. She used to love sitting on the potty before she started nursery but now she shouts like anything when i try and put her on the potty and even when i suggest it to her every time its a no. What do i do?????

have you tryed the toliet she mite like what mummys doing an copy sh may also not be ready 2 is still quite early dont rush her or make deal of it cos ur make her worse

summers coming and thats a great time to potty train

praise her when she sits on it. and they reword her with stickers or something that she likes when she does something. but as the other mums have said dont push her she may not be ready. u have to make it fun for her. let her see u on the toilet let her know what u are doing. it may sound strange and fell strange but it will happen. good luck!!!

I really dont think you should push her to hard. If she is not ready you could just make things worse. I would still suggest the potty regulary but I would not force her. If she really does not seem interested, try again in a few weeks.

We started my daughter about 6mths ago just introducing her and about 3mths ago it was just a fight all the time so rather than scaring her off I gave up and just gently asked with no expectations either way. Now she has been potty trained for about a month except BMs which she freaks out at and uses a nappy. She came to me more or less when she was ready. But thats also how she works lol little miss independence

I am in the process of potty training my Isaiah. I understand your frustration. Two things that have helped with him is giving him the option of which potty to use (he has a potty chair that he rarely uses and of course the regular potty) and rewarding him with something that he has chosen (he loves to brush his teeth so that is he "reward" lol). I have also let him pick his own "potty trained" underwear (he chose Thomas the Train underwear). He gets to wear them on the days he uses the potty. Although he is not yet fully potty trained he is doing very well. I wish you the best of luck and hope it works out for you.

Suggest that they take her at nursery and that her friends go too. Sometimes it takes them seeing a friend do it too that makes them more interested. Continue to take her at home, but don't force her if she truly isn't interested. My daughter has been trained for about 3 weeks now and there were times where she would whine and whine and whine while on the potty, but she would still go. I would also give her some stickers each time she goes or even let her know that she can get a treat if she sits or goes on the potty x amount of times. Good luck.

just stick to your guns and keep taking her to the potty and putting her on it. take her every half an hour and just keep asking her. you might want to ask the nursery if they are working with her and check out their bathroom.
also you might want to give her options. i have a potty in my daughters room as well as the big potty. giving her stickers, candy, or some kind of a treat could also help.
my daughter is 2 1/2 years old and still not potty trained. we are working on it but she has her days where she refuses to use the potty, wear pull ups or even undies. its just something that has to click with the child - theres no time or trick to it, its all up to the child.
