My 3 year old daughter will only poop in her potty. The only time she pee's in it is if we happen to get her to sit on it at the right time. She has no interest in going on the potty. It's starting to get to be a fit throwing thing just for us to get her to sit on the potty to try to go. Any ideas?

My son and I made a "potty poster" together and he added a sticker to it every time he used the potty. I also had to turn off his movies when he peed on the floor, otherwise he wouldn't leave the tv. This worked in 2 days, after months and months of trying! He was nearly 4!

With my oldest I took away something of his that he really liked until he went in the potty. At the time his favorite movie was Jungle Book and he could not watch it until he went to the potty. When he did then he got to watch the movie.

Have you tried doing the piggy bank thing? Hand her some coins to put in there every single time she has to go potty and does it correctly.

My best experience with my daughter was to be patient. I encouraged her to go on the potty and took her in there every hour or so but she just wasn't ready. She was around older kids at daycare and she started doing perfect there but at home was still have accidents and with a lot of encouragment and patience she came around when she was ready and has been fully potty trained for almost a year now. I tried the charts and candy when she went and tried giving her a book or toy on the potty to make it fun and nothing worked for us until she was ready.
