My daughter is starting school in a few months and they don't change diapers or anything there. My daughter just won't use the toilet I tried stickers, reward systems, ect. Nothing works I need some ideas. If she is not potty trained by the first day of school what do I do? I've tried pull-ups but she takes them off all the time. And gets pee and poo all over her clothes. I tried everything any suggestions.

You need to tell her to take the girl to the bathroom every half hour all day long. If she gets messy to have the child take off the clothing and clean up and get dressed again and continue the process. That is what you tell the sitter...its that easy to tell.

It's so weird my child doesn't go at night not to the bathroom a not in pants or any diapers she never did this even when she was a baby. I have a babysitter for my child during the week days what should I tell her for intrsuctions? I really do appreciate all you are doing for me. God bless you.

You should have continued this process up to this point going all the time. By quitting that and think she would do it on her own did not help. My youngest child was 3.5 years old before he was totally potty trained. It took him forever and would go every time to the bathroom and try to do something. I kept at it till he learned. I also had him in training pants with a coverup to help with leaks in case he had an accident. Once we started night time training, it took a week and he never peed the bed after that.

When she was 2-3 I room her every half hour to the restroom. But now that she is older I just kinda feel like a she should be doing on her own. I do have to admit have done many things wrong with this process. I really do appreciate all the things you have suggested. We'll like in the week I take her to the bathroom morning afternoon and evening but the weekly trips are longer. God please forgive me for all the sins I have made in the past with potty training my little girl.

And weekly bathroom trips? THat should be an everyday thing not once a week for a few hours. It should be done all day long a few times an hour until she goes to bed. As for leaving her in those soiled underclothes and clothiing, no, do not leave her in them. Make HER change her clothes and clean up and put on clean clothes. I guarentee that she should not like the wettness of pee or sliminess of the poo on her body because it smells so bad. But you should have been more consistent with taking her potty back when she was between 2 and 3 years of age.

Thank you for your help. I really appreciate it. Actually about once week we spend a few hours in the bathroom to make her go. I will try just the underwear. Let's say she does her business in it should I make her stay in those clothes so she learns not or do it cause she does not like the wetness and stuff like that or just chage her. I may take her to the doctor because when we do the weely bathroom trip she holds it in nothing comes out.

Well, it is time to stop buying pullups, diapers, and anything akin to that. You need to get her underware and that is all she gets to wear. Make her go to the bathroom every 30 minutes until she starts to hit the toilet with her pee and poop. If she gets messy make her change her clothing, take a bath, and start over. If she is doing this for attention, then you need to step up and make her learn the correct things to do for using the bathroom. If that is not the case, maybe you should take her to the doctor nd have her checked out for physical problems. It sounds like you just gave up potty training her altogether because she did not want to do it. SHe should have long since been trained.
