i have been potty training for what seems like forever. she did really good for a while but there have been some big changes in our lives. now she goes on the potty sometimes but usually goes in her panties. i have tried pull ups, cotton panties, vinyl training pants, no panties, naked!

I'm losing my mind!!! Tonight at dinner she peed in her chair while i was talking to her! HELP ME!

i have heard of this special type of training i have never done it as my son is only one, but its been treid and tested call toilet traing in a day dont know how they mannaged. but first your daughter would have to be old enough to understand what was goin on. ita all really to dod with bribery- but the other side which is wat shocked me is that they tell there children that they are the ones that have to clean themselves up when they have the accident they get givin everything they need to do it so its there responsability. then the bribery thing was buyin a whole heap of stuff toys lollies all that stuff they love and putting it on the table and explaing them when they do well they can chose anything they like. i dont know if this works but i know im gonna try when my time comes! Good luck!

You might just have to go back to diapers for a while until she's ready. Changes in life can set them back. My son is almost 4 and we've just got this potty training thing under control. He had to make up his mind that he wanted to be a big boy. I did have a few things I could use on him, such as going to the YMCA this summer instead of DayCare if he was potty trained. My mom took him out shopping for big boy underwear when he had a few successful days too. I don't believe in pull ups (except for night time which we call "sleeping underwear") because they are too much like diapers and they cost too much. I just stress "Big Boy" and ask often.
