Iv'e learned with my third child not to be any rush and wait for when she's ready to potty train. It takes a lot of patience. Good luck.

potty charts, sticker's, prizes..lots and lots of praise when duty is done.. and patience.. she'll get it eventually.

don't force it. every child does it at their own pace.If she can tell you that she is wet or poopy then it's a good sign to start. i would start by getting a potty and have it in an accessible place for her so she has the freedom to sit on it. even if you get her to sit on it with her clothes on is fine. SHE has to be interested in it, go to the library and get some children's books on potty training.

Make sure she has pants she can pull up and down by herself. Buy some pull-up diapers for her. when she gets a hang of going to the toilet start with the underwear. Don't get mad if she has accidents.

Use LOTS of praise when she does go on the toilet. I also have a potty seat that fits on the toilet. It's worked well and a little stool(usually you can get one at the dollarstore so they can climb up to the toilet. Encourage handwashing too.

Best of luck to you. Message me if you have any questions.
