okay moms so i have already potty trained one little girl and did it early, my oldest was potty trained at 21 months, we got lucky with her but my youngest is being stubborn! she is 22 months old and has been interested in pee-peeing and was doing it about once a day or more sometimes then the other day she pooped in the potty and freaked out of course and waited a few days and started peeing again but then pooped again and freaked out even worse!! now i cant even get her to pee anymore...i know its normal for them to be a little scared of the poop situation but how can i get her UNscared??? i have tried putting in the toilet and letting her flush, praising like crazy, prizes, reading books on the potty! any suggestions...

Don't push it. I have 4 kids, the first 3 were all trained by 2 yrs my 4th will be 3 and I let him decide when was right for him .
my cousin was scared to poo in the potty after months of wonder why and her mother distressed she finally realized that her daughter was hearing another family member (from the hallway) "pushing - having constipation" Scared the day lights out of her.
Maybe a trip to the zoo (animals are very free about there potty).
