my 2 year old is moving up to a different class in daycare. they potty train in this class and she can't move up until she's completely potty trained. she hates wearing a diaper, but she refuses to use her "big girl" potty. i've tried everything, even bribing, and nothing has seemed to work. i'm a single mom, only 18 years old, with no help from the family. Suggestions would be appreciated....

This post is kind of old so I really hope that the training worked out well. I don't have any tips unfortunatelly I face the same problem now and I am really full of admiration for you for I am older, not working out of home, and really losing my patience with this potty business. I gave up several times waiting for a better moment maybe when he will understand more but it doesn't want to come. My son who is 20 months counts to 10 and speaks in full sentences has a trouble getting his poop into the right place...argh...also tried all the methods...Waiting for a better time...

Hi, i look after a 2 and a half year old boy.I have had him since he was 4 months.Last year in November to this year February i went to Australia to see my two grand-daughters.The grand mother looked after him for one month and was potty training with out a fuss.Then he was sent to creche for 2 months.Now we don't know what happened at the creche as he refuses to go to the toilet.He cry's so much that he turns blue in the face.Even though i ask every 5 minutes and i do put him in training pants,he still does his business in the pants.I even tried bribing him with sweets and says he does not want any sweets. He will be 3 years in January 22nd 2010.Can some one give me some advice.

To add to that, Spray and wash laundry stain romover and an old towel works best on the carpet. It took everything out of my cream colored carpet.

I started by letting my daughter come into the bathroom with me to see what the potty is for. When it was time for her to start potty training, what worked best was to put a long shirt on her or dresses and let her run around with no bottoms. She hated the mess running down her legs, so she quickly learned to go in the potty. Get super super excited when she does go in the potty, do a dance, act crazy, she'll love it and laugh and want to see more of it. It is a messy method but it worked for me in a matter of a weekend. Happy to give the suggestion, hope it helps.

Don't use pull ups go right to panties and rubber pants if you have to... Girls hate feeling the mess. Try giving a small treat after she finishes going... DON'T GIVE IN AND GIVE ONE FOR TRYING....
