Potty Training

I've been potty training my 2 year old for a couple weeks now. She's doing great with it! But the problem I'm having is this...she WILL NOT go potty by herself. It doesn't matter what I'm doing, no matter the importance, she will not go by herself. Her older sister don't want to help. Any suggestions?

Not sure if you would want to do this or not. But when I work on potty training my day care kids I just put the potty chair in the room where we are playing. I often times have little ones that I need to attend to and can't leave alone, so this allows me to tend to the little ones, but also help those learning to train with their pants and such. (It also gives them a reminder when they are playing to take that break and go if they need to). After they got pretty comfortable with going on the potty chair and were doing it pretty consistantly I would then move the chair into the bathroom. By this time they were doing a pretty good job at pulling up and down their pants, but could not botton them, so I would do that when they came out of the bathroom.
