My daughter first used the potty, both pee and poop, at 18 months. Now she's nearly 4, and she flat-out refuses to go on a regular basis. She has days where she'll go every single day, and then she has days where she will sit on the potty all day and not spill a drop. She mostly stays dry during nap and bedtime, so we don't know where she's putting all that pee! She won't tell us when she needs to go, and she won't tell us when she HAS gone, to the point where she'll lie and say she hasn't gone when obviously she has. We have tried sticker chart, food treats, special privileges like the library and movies, putting her on every hour, putting her on UNTIL she goes, offering her "big girl" incentives like a new bed with sheets she got to pick out, putting her in just big girl underpants (which she picked out but just goes potty inside of), and about a half dozen other alternatives. She even changes her own diaper, except poop, and HATES to be touched for cleaning. Literally everything we've seen and heard we've tried. We can't put her into preschool until she's potty trained. Please help!!!!
