I have tryied everything from sticks, reward charts, and prazing her everytime she goes on the potty and nothings working. I don't know what to do. She is three and she should be potty trained. I think she may not be ready but i don't want her to be 5 and not be potty trained. what do i do?

Is it because she's not interested, or is it because she doesn't seem to make it to the toilet in time? Potty training my twp boys was....interesting. They would do good for a month and then decide to quit. It was really frustrating and just like you nothing worked. My oldest, now 6, didn't get completely potty trained until he was 4. I also have a son that's 5 andI just took him to the doctor because he still has a problem with potty training and I learned that he has a bladder that basically has a mind of it's own (I don't remember what he called it) He will eventually grow out of it, but until then I need to set an alarm, every 2 hours to help him remember to go.

Nothing worked with my son either except bribery! he got a sweet everytime he went for wee on toilet, then whenever he did a poo then whenever his pants were completely dry and clean. Good luck!
