As much as us parents don't want to hear it... You can't control this one. She has to want to. I was upset since my child was almost 4 but one day it just clicked. She decided she wanted to do it and we haven't had any problems.

Hey Crystal :) I had alma go to the potty when she was 2 and i did it by buying pull ups, and taking her to the bathroom like every 1.5 2 hours, and everytime i had to go.. Even if she didnt have to go, i put her on the little red Dora seat she chose in the store, and when she did go, i cheered her up telling her she did great.. In our home it was a big deal when she went, and everone was very excited everytime she did.. That made her proud and in the end, she was asking for it her self.. Its a good thing its summer, cause you can acctually have her run around with out a diaper.. jest remember to take her to the Bathroom offen :)

Good Luck :)
