My daughter is 2 1/2, she will be 3 in January. We have been trying to potty train for awhile and each time has been a failed attempt. For awhile, she was absolutely terrified of using any kind of potty, including a grown up one and the pink frog one that sits on the floor, so we laid off for a few months and have recently started trying again. I have tried it all... My daughter is the most stubborn child I have ever met!! We have tried the whole treat bag thing, the sticker system, telling her it's a "big girl thing to do", bribing... Everything. So for the past few days, we have just decided to let her go without a diaper from the time she wakes up until the time she goes to bed. But guess what? SHE WILL NOT GO! She literally holds it ALL DAY until we put a diaper on her at bedtime and then she fills it up in 30 minutes! I am so frustrated with this process and I honestly do not know WHAT ELSE TO DO! I take her to the potty every hour on the hour and she will sit there for hours on end and will not use the bathroom, but as soon as she gets a diaper back on, she lets it all loose! PLEASE HELP!!
