Okay so I pottry trained her at 3 and shes been going potty i put her in pampers on long trips like when we went to disney land. Shes 4 now and she doesnt like going potty she says the potty will eat her booty. I have sat on the potty and showed her that it didint eat my booty but she says it only wants her booty. She pees in the bed almost every night and goes to the potty in a bin in the closet of her room she doesnt like the potty HELP!!!!

She is in preschool and they go potty together in school she doesnt potty at school either. Since like i said in the Body: she says it only wants her booty. I have tried putting her on the toliet she just fights me so i just dont do it.

Sounds like (i'm just speaking from mothers wit here) there is some sort of fear about the potty that has been put into her. She has something specific on her mind when it comes to the toilet, finding out what could be a challenge. She might need counseling.

On the other hand, she goes in a bin in the closet? Why? That doesn't encourage normal behavior for a child. She should be told to goin a diaper or she goes on the potty, normal options.

Another thing to consider, just putting her on the real toilet...I mean, is her potty a real monster? Like my daughters is a real looking toilet, but some pottys are green monsters with monster faces and things..
Just thinking...

And do you have other kids, or is she in daycare where she can be around other kids to see that the potty doesn't eat their booty's....
I wish you the best..
