She's not ready...give her 3 or 4 weeks and try it again. I potty trained my son using signals from him as to if he was ready or not and he was fully potty trained by his 2nd birthday.

Mine was the same way so we took it as not being ready yet. We waited a month or so and now he's going peepee on the potty. No poop yet though :-( We plan on fulling potty training him after Thanksgiving with the whole potty training undies and plastic undies. I found out that if he has pull up's on, he thinks they are regular diapers so he just goes in his pants. Hang in there, she just may not be ready just yet. Maybe try in a couple of weeks! :-)

Try the "teach me " method... take her when you go, reward your self with a healthy snack. an apple, carrots something that is good for her! if she refuses go "naked" pick a weekend stay home for 3 days straight and leave her naked ! start with the potty chair say in the living room and each time she goes move it one step closer to the bathroom you want her to use! once she has gone enough to get to the big girl potty have it decorated and a big girl surprise waiting, like new panties and an outfit, or her favorite treat!! this teach her that for good behavior there can be great rewards!!

Don't push her. If shes not ready, which I'm guessing shes not since shes fighting you, theres no point in even trying. It will just cause more stress that can be avoided.
I would stop the training and wait awhile. Wait until she shows you she is ready. You can keep the idea alive but don't push her to do it.

Well one thing u could try is, giving her a reward. I give my stepson a pop, but only if he goes. You could try making them like I do. My stepson seem to like them more than the store bought ones. I just pour Apple juice/ orange juice/ grape juice/ V8 juice into an ice tray. And the best thing is, they cost less and last longer than the store bought ones. But like Stacy said, its best to keep the routine going. Otherwise, she may think its okay to go to the bathroom in her diaper. Good luck! Hope this helps.

Its hard, but keep giving her opportunities to go IE before changing clothes, bath, etc.... Keeping the routine going even if she doesn't follow it is the best. Mine is 2 1/2 knows how to do the potty but now is rejecting it because doesn't want to stop even for rewards. so will continue routine. hope this helps
