My 3 year old has recently started using the potty on her own. To get her there we used sticker charts and candy as a reward whenever she had a success. Well it's been a while now and she still expects candy and stickers for every little pee and poo she does in the potty. So how do I change that? How do I get her to realize now that she can use the toilet that you don't always get a reward for doing it? The girl seriously goes only a little at a time so that she can spread them out and get more candy (she's very smart like that). I have tried to just limit it to poos for the candy but she started spreading those out too. And I'm afriad that if I stop cold-turkey she will relapse just so she can get the attention again. What do all the other moms do?
