@ Layce, my daughter was hard headed too. I just had to beat her at her own game!

We are potty training my 2 year old right now. I would make my husband take him when he needed to pee. When we had diapers on him, he would very rarely say he had to pee then go into the bathroom. For two days I kept his diaper off of him (after he had is morning poop) and he would go into the bathroom every time he needed to pee. So I bought him underwear the other day. He's doing well. He pees a little in his underwear then stops and holds it and runs into the bathroom to use the potty.

I also have a bunch of stickers in thee bathroom for when he pees. Everytime he uses the potty I let him pick a sticker that he wants. He usually ends up sticking it to the back of the toilette lol.

I still strap on a diaper before he goes to bed because he's not able to get to the bathroom without me in the morning and he poops in the morning too before I wake up. I don't know how im going to start the pooping in the potty training next lol.



Try a reward system, that almost ALWAYS works for kids with everything.

I'm about in the same position as you are with my 3 year old daughter! I've had some people tell me to take her to the bathroom when I go, when you sit them down (or your case stand up) turn the water on in the sink to make them go (that's how my mother potty trained me), bribing works.

I've tried these and with my daughter it does't work. She's hard headed! But the main thing is to just keep going with it. They will pick up eventually.

I just took the diapers away from my 3 year old. I had had enough! She also stays dry at night too. She did have a few accidents, but then she was fully trained. I did bribe her with M&M's.
