If there is something she likes get that it might help ex.. My daughter loved the thought of having her own dollar so every hour or so I would ask her got to go potty if you do I will give you a dollar she would go and when she would set the dollar down I would pick it up and do it again lol.. Also I let her pick out her own big girl panties good luck

Don't fret - you're doing the best you can, just as the rest of us! I've worked on potty training three at this point and I've found that it's trial and error with each one. I waited until the child was ready to sit on the potty and "try" and once that happened, I focused on them wearing underpants all day and pull-ups during sleep. Don't worry, it will come together, when she's ready. Best wishes!

At age two, i tried the pull ups and it didnt help so I would put them in underwear and when they have an accident i let them sit in it for a few minutes so they could figure out that was not comfortable at all. I also took them to the bathroom every hour making them sit on the toilet and then praising them when they "produced" something on the toilet. My oldest was the hardest but my youngest hated to be wet at all so she potty trained by 18 months. You just have to be persistant with what you do.

There is a really good book on it, check your library or ebay, called "Potty training in less than a day". It talks about what to say to them, being consistent and taking a whole day to just concentrate solely on potty training... I had other kids, so I was a bit distracted but when I followed it almost closely it only took about a week.
