So my daughter is 2 1/2 and hates the idea of using the potty! She know what is going on and what the potty is for but laughs at the idea of using it! I could ask her where she is suppose to go potty and she will tell me and show me, but will not go! I have tried it all...nothing is working! Any ideas, PLEASE HELP!!!!

I just read a great advice on another potty question and i think it may help you i'll copy and paste it for you:
I had the same problem. So from a suggestion from my mother... go to the store and get a cheap book or toy and put it in your bathroom... tell her the only time she can have that item is when she goes potty. It worked for me... she was potty trained in 2 days flat.
hopefully it works for us as well as it did for her!

I had that same problem with my 2 1/2 yr. old, O.m.G! it is frustrating just on the strength that they know better, but won't do better. I would constantly ask myself "Why is Evangeline so stubborn" Well my grandmom said just take her to the bathroom every hour and after she eats and drink and if she is in day care tell the staff to make sure they do it. I started doing it but I realized whith her I had to go to the extream. For instants if she got in one of her moods I would say "Evie if you don't go potty then no juice for you" (Evies favorite to drink) She would run to the bathroom and go on her own so she could get her juice. My little cousin who is the same age as Evie would come to my house, and when he had to use the potty he would encourage her to go after he got done. She did just that, so went to the extent of getting everyone in the household involved. Well she got the picture pretty quick, and even though she did I still take her every hour and give her all her props for doing a great job. She has accident once in a while which will happen. She'll come to me and let me know what she did wrong, for ex: She plays with her toys too long, watching t.v. or trying to hold it (which is a reason you wanna take your daughter potty every hour). She'll let me know that she will do bette rnext time. Once she started getting in the swing of things I had alot more patience. Helps and hang in there!

sometimes it can take a bit longer with girls or so i've heard because my 2 1/2 year old son has a friend that is only starting to potty train and she's nearly 3 so try starting from the start and maybe letting her run around naked. that how i started with my son in between wearing his nappy then when they do it you jump for joy and give them rewards like stickers and lollies plus if she has a friend that she can watch go to the toilet, it helps to because his friend was watching him for a little bit then she started plus it helps if she can pull down her pants to and knows when they go do wees or poos that's another sign that there ready but don't use pull ups there a waist of time my son was taking his nappy of himself but i still put a nappy on when he sleeps but not all the time but mostly at night it took him three weeks to do poos on the potty and that's when i fully put him in big boy's pants he will still have accidents but that happens. my son takes his own clothes of and will go on the potty before i even get up then he brings the potty to us, read her the toilet training book for girls every night and sometimes you might just need to take a break i tried when he was two but not ready then tried again three months later, it worked so good luck try not to rush it they will let you know if there ready now i have to get my son on the toilet more instead of the potty but i'm not rushing it he's happy with the potty it's easy for him to get on and don't get the toilet seat with steps there not that secure so good luck with it all.
