Having trouble potty training a three year old and does not tell me when she needs to go potty

When I started potty training my daughter, I used the potty app. I set the timer for every 15 mintues. I know that is a lot of getting up and taking them, be prepared to go through a lot of clothes. They will have accidents and just remind them its okay, just don't get frustrated. Within about 3-4 days of doing this non stop, my daughter was going by herself without me telling her to. I also printed of a chart and every time she made it to the potty without wetting her panties, she got a sticker to put on her chart. Once she filled it up with stickers, I took her to the store and let her pick out her on toy. She really thought she was a big girl. I hope this helps

lol I haven't tried it, but there's an app for that. My friend's granddaughter potty trained with an phone and it worked. She said it was really cute. Might've been Potty Time, there's several of them. It was good because when she needed to go, she went and got the phone...which got everyone's attention.

Personally, I had boys, and boys apparently LIKE to wear warm and squishy diapers. Mine were both slow to potty train. I tried taking them to the potty every hour, I tried putting them in undies and letting them feel wet, I tried reading on the potty, I tried positive reinforcement, I put cheerios in the potty so they could aim. Pbbbththth. They both DID get potty trained, but it was when they wanted to. One was just before 4 yrs and one was just after 4 yrs.

Hang on! She'll get there :D

I continued to let my son stay in a shirt and underwear if we were just at home. I stressed about it because even giving him treats for going would not work then one day he just decided that he wanted to do it to be a big boy. You just need to let your child do it on their own terms :)
