I bought my little girl a doll that had it's own little potty and that peed.I kept her little doll potty next to our toilet and after a day or two of bringing the doll to do it's pee she started to do it.them when she started to get the hang of it i started to say every now and then''Abigail did your dolly pee on the floor?I think that you should go show your dolly how a big girl pee's'' and she started to bring the doll to the bathroom and ''let the dolly watch her pee''.Hope this help's!!!

My daughter had issues with the pooping in the potty too! My daughter liked tattoo's for some reason, so I rewarded her for going poo on the potty with a temperary tattoo. It helpd her because she got to show off her tattoos and she was proud when she was asked why she got the tattoo. Good luck!

We had a hard time with potty training. We tried charts, praise, rewards, singing, dancing, all kinds of stuff. But the thing that worked best for us was a special potty chart. She loved the chart I made (stickers included) where she got to work towards different rewards. I had it set up so that she could chose a dance party (that would be where she and I make confetti, and throw it up in the air while we dance to music), sing and dance, ice-cream, pick a dvd (to watch), an art project, and cookies. She loved that she could chose what she wanted to do first and was excited to put the stickers on. Maybe you could do something like that with your daughter and #2.

I always trained my kids first by taking them with me every time i went to the wash room , then i would clap and sing and dance and generally act like a fool after i went , they thought this was so funny they would do anything to get me to do it again! Also with my daughter she loved the idea of wearing pretty panties so it ws good incentive when we went shopping for some!

Sticker charts are really good and the little ones love to see their chart becoming full with stickers. Also maybe you can try taking her to the toilet and sitting on their, sometimes the little ones feel more grown up and makes it feel it easier for them.
There are also some really good books that you can get to read with her about potty training from the local library :)

i had a stubborn one too but she loved to put stickers on her chart after she went potty and we tried to keep it fun, if you turn it into a battle it gets much harder, we also took a special trip to buy big girl panties. Hang in there she will get it. Also be aware that some children grow quicker than their bladders and may need to be reminded every hour to try. We also bought a potty chair that would sing a song when ahe went. My dr. reccomened a video called prudence the potty chair. Good luck and best wishes.
