Should i worry that my daughter is not fully toilet trained.. shes just turned three last week. Shell go without the nappy for a few hours, but then gets really anxious and cries! which then upsets me, and i give in a few times.

My daughter was three and a half. what worked for us was a reward system. i took her to target and showed her the little einstein rocket toy (she is a big fan of that show) and told her if she goes five days with no accidents she gets her very own rocket. we marked a calander at night time with a smiley face and on the (tecnically sixth) day we went to target and got the rocket toy. she was wearing the big girl panties the whole time. now every once in a while she does have an accident. because she is to excited to stop what she is doing and take a potty break. but every accident we have had has been in the bathroom (at home too) right next to the toilet because she just has not made it.  hope this helps some one. we also used this theory to get her to give up her nuk (pacifier) ad again it worked.

I am having the same problem with my twins. It's been so hard for me to train them. Hopefully someone can help us. Have a nice day!

My youngest daughter just turned 3 in feb. She is still working on the fine art of potty training too. Every kid goes at their own pace. Maybe try helping along by asking her if she would like to wear big girl pants and see if that peaks her interrest, just make sure to keep an eye on her and ask her every little bit if she has to go. As for the anxiety, again every child is different, but just try to comfort her and see if that helps. maybe read a book or something with her or maybe a favorite video and see if that helps. I hope this helps a bit..
