my daughter says all the time when she pee's and poop's, however she wont sit on the toilet to do so. we have bought her a Dora seat that sets on the toilet but she wont do anything when she sits down. all she does is look at herself. there is a lot of pressure on me to get her trained because my niece was trained before she was 2. she pretty much trained herself too. my mom and sister-in-law are really pushing me to train her but i dont think she is ready yet. when i trained my son he would say when he had to go and he would sit on the toilet. the first time he did pee in the potty we were so happy and we sang and danced and made a huge deal out of it. after that it was somewhat easy to train him. my daughter however will sit down for 30 seconds and say "all done fush, water go bye, bye".. HELP please i dont know what to do. if she is even ready.

First of all there is nothing you can do if she's just not ready. Second you can encourage her to use the potty and bring her in the bathroom with you when you use the restroom. She may be scared of the big toilet even though you bought her the special seat. I would just encourage her to use the potty and while she's on the potty keep her kind of side tracked by reading stories or letting her have a toy to play with. I have done this with my daughter and it's worked so far she now wears underwear all day and no accidents for three days now... Keep your head up and just encourage your daughter to use the bathroom and do not discipline her for pottying in a diaper or pull up. Good Luck
