This my 3rd attempt at potty training my twin girls. The first time was at 18months, the second at 22 months and now again at 25months. I am beyond frustrated as they are showing all the signs they are ready and have been for some time but they hate sitting on the pot.
One of my girls will sit on the pot for a long time and as soon as I take her off and she goes into another room, she'll pee in the floor. It never fails!!! My other girl will pee on the pot more often, however she too hates sitting on the pot for any period of time and also will get up from the pot and pee in the floor.
Just this morning I cleaned up at least 6 accidents in the floor and I have been putting them on the pot every 15-20 minutes! I have tried reading to them as they sit on the pot. I have tried giving them a toy to keep them on the pot. I have tried letting them sit on the potty when I use the bathroom. I have even tried sitting with them and talking to them. Nothing seems to work. Is this normal? These girls will deplete their entire pantie drawer in one day!!! They are over two years now and both are soooo smart and above average in everything else that they do. Should I stop training them and wait until they are three even though they are showing all of the readiness signs now? I just don't know what to do at this point. Please help!!
