I talked up the big girl panties to mine. Put them on her and she didn't like the feeling of wet legs so she learned real quick. When it is warm outside let her play out side with the panties on so if she wets then it won't get your floors dirty.

I used a rewards system. I made a chart and hung it near the potty. The chart had a peepee in the potty and a poopy in the potty column. Everytime they went they got to put a sticker in the corresponding column. The kids always liked looking at thier accomplishments. You might also want to try setting a goal. If they reach a certain amount of stickers they get something special. This also helps develop those counting skills...And of course, you musn't forget to make a huge deal out of EVERYTIME they go potty even if its just a little tinkle...

When it comes to potty training your kids you can not force them to go on the potty seat. You need to let them pick out there seat as a reward for good behavior. When they are ready they will use that seat they picked out because they own it.

with my son we tried the whole pull ups thing and that never worked for him. i took him to the store one day and told him that he could pick out his big boy underwear, then we went to the book section and he picked out a book called The potty train. after that we were off to the toys he got a conductor's hat and a train whistle. the book, whistle, and hat stayed in the bathroom and we read the book and played potty train when he had to go. it only took him a few weeks to learn. so my best potty training advice is make it fun and let them be a part of the whole process. good luck!!!
