We have been trying to potty train my daughter now for over a year.. She will go pee pee on the potty no problem no accidents, but when it comes to going number 2.. she goes in her pants. she will scream when i try to take her to the bathroom to sit on the potty, i have tried to take away her pullups but she will scream and scream till she gets one on or she will hold it!! dont know what to do. We have tried rewards, disipline, time outs EVERYTHING!! Can someone else please tell me that they have had this problem and how to work with it and fix it.. she is just so stubborn and has this block to not want to go number 2 on the potty!! HELP..

Back off she'll do it when she's ready but don't think you're above bribing. We're having some issues with my son going poo on the potty, or rather telling us so we upped the bribe to timbits and he's been doing great! he loves timbits, but luckily only goes poo every second day lol

You might have tried too early hence why it has taken over a year. Now just sit back and wait for it to be her time. How old is she?

Let her be. It'll happen in time. If you try and force it she could end up w/ constipation issues for years (I know a family that that happened to).
