I have recently started potty training my girls, and am struggling with it. My little one, who is usually the follower when it comes to milestones, is actually taking the lead on this one. The other one doesn't even seem to be interrested. I have a friend that has twin girls, and she told me that they were actually easy because it was like a competition to them, but mine don't seem to be that way. I've moved their potty chairs into the living room so they can watch a movie to help them relax. The result?....sitting for a long time with the smaller one eventually going potty and one or both of them crying alot. I should also mention that I have implemented a reward system for success. When the one that refuses to go sees the other one getting candy and wants some too, I tell her that she has to go potty in order to get the candy. Should I abort all efforts with the one who doesn't seem as interrested, and focus on the one that goes more in hopes that the other one will catch on and start following? What worked for you?
