My daughter has got to be the most stubborn when it comes to potty training. She refuses to sit on the potty and when I put her on it she cries and cries. I have tried putting undies on her and she will cry and cry and tell me they are (ready for this) "dangerous"... She has no problem with peeing in the undies. She has been outside and she will pee inthem and say she is peeing outside like a dog. I dotn want her to be 3 and still wearing pullups. I have also tried letting her be naked in the house when we are alone but she hates that too. She wants her pullups. My son was 2 1/2 and he was completely trained in 1 week and wearing undies to bed after 1 month. Only ever had 1 accident in bed. I am so frustrated with her stubbornness at this point I dont know what to do. Is anyone else out there having issues? As a stay at home mom I feel like I am failing at it because its my full time job.. What can I do ?? I am so stressed about it . HELP!!

So happy I'm not the only one! My son will use the potty at school - stays dry all day except nap time but it is because the teacher takes all of them together - hourly! At home, he doesn't want to be bothered. However at night when I'm trying to get him to go to bed he'll tell me he has to go and he usually does. I'm just keeping him in pull-ups and hoping he is totally ready soon!

Don't give up, I'm in the same boat. My daughter understands where to potty and will even sit on the potty if I tell her she needs to go, but she will not tell me she needs to go. I figure it will come when she is ready. She tells me all the time when has pooped in her pullups and will even pull them off if they are wet, but she hasn't figured out that she needs to go sit on the potty when she needs to go. I've tried everything from treats to wearing real panties but she is either really stubborn or just isn't interested for right now.

My DD was born 9-14-09 and she's just now tellilng me she needs to go "pee pee" I ask her if she needs to go but never make her. If you do this you'll just push training back even further. They have to be ready...she STILL won't poop in the potty at all. But some days she stays dry all day and some days she won't tell me at all. Good Luck, be patient...encourage don't enforce

My son Jackson was born Sept 30th, 2009, and he's not potty trained either. Same thing, physically ready just not that interested. We recently had a breakthrough because I came across 'Elmos' Potty Song' on youtube. Now he'll watch the song and sing along and want to sit on his potty just like Elmo is, so I think we'll be making progress. Like the other moms said, stay positive about it and don't put a lot of pressure on her, just keep the potty option readily available and she'll come around.

When my daughter was showing signs of being aware of needing the toilet
I just had the potty sitting in the living room. I would play games with her like putting baby on
The potty etc. we used to use it to carry toys or just anything
Around the house an one day she said she needed to pee and it just happened
Good luck with it x but don't panic when she's ready se will let you know xxx

If I was you, I would just do the diaper thing and not make any fuss about potty training at all. She might be doing it for negative attention, or she may feel like she has no control over using the potty and feel like she doesn't have a choice. Does that make sense>

She isn't ready yet. I'm having the same problem with my son. He has been physically ready for about 6 months but he isn't mentally ready yet. He hates sitting on the potty. I thought maybe it was because it hurt to sit on there, ours is one piece and plastic, kind of like one to travel with. So I bought him a seat to put on the toilet with a Cars theme (He LOVES Cars). He refuses to sit on that too.

Do you take her with you to the bathroom? Try sticker charts, treats for going or even trying? There are a lot of ideas on here if you want to try them. There is an entire board for potty training on here. I've given and gotten advice on that board. My daughter was easy compared to my son, and I thought she was difficult to potty train. For her, she was having accidents every day. Then the teacher in the 3's room (she used to go to daycare, now I stay home too), talked with her and said she wouldn't be able to move to the 3's room until she stopped having accidents. And that was all it took. She was dry from then on.

I say just wait. Try again later. But I dont' think going back and forth between pull-ups and undies is a good idea. It'll probably just confuse her. Good luck!
