My name is Ramona I will be 40 years old in March, and I have a beautiful and smart little daughter named Ruby. Ruby will be 3 Feb. 9 but we are having so much difficulty potty training. I have been working with Ruby for over 6 months now and she will still only go if prompted. She will not say she has to go and still has to wear pull-ups to bed or if we go out. I have tried EVERYTHING from bribery to rewards to punishment but to no avail, I have read everything too but my stubborn sweet child refuses to say she has to go and go. As long as I stay with her all day she is fine I can keep reminding her to go but when will she just know she has to go for herself?? And poop is a whole nother story, she almost never goes poop in the potty. She just keep doing it in her pants. I am willing to do whatever we have to but she is getting to an age where I cannot be with her all the time. Anyone else have any potty training nightmares? How did you resolve them?
