First, Are you using pull ups or training pants or pretty panties? Second, be consistant...Third reward her everytime for a week.

I know you will think I am nuts. but here goes...I read a book several years ago named..."How to potty train your child in one day". Hey it works for mentally ill children and adults too. Here is why. You have a drinking and wetting baby doll, and show the doll drinking and going to the potty... and getting a reward like m & m's..every time... You dedicate a whole day or weekend and be consistant with your child. Also, wet underware are uncomfortable...This has worked for at least 15 children and foster children for me. Also, No making your child sit on the potty until the business is done and no coloring books or books...Don't make this a negative experience...no spanking or shaming....Have Faith and be patient....Good Luck...Also, put on underware for night time...and if you have to put a pull up over the top to keep sheets dry.

Yea we have tried letting her just stay wet and it doesn't bother her most times she won't even stop playing when she does wet her panties. She has days she does really well like only one accident but then other days it's more frequent. Just for home from dr like two days ago and she said there is no reason besides her being lazy and not wanting to stop what she's doing to go

She is more than capable at three to know when she wants a poop and her bladder control should be nearly 95% as well.



From now on only use knickers and never place her in a nappy. Take her to the toilet every fifteen minutes until she wees and then wait an hour before you take her again. She is to old to use a potty now use the toilet with a seat, let her watch you use the toilet so she knows everybody does it. Stay in for a week to crack this so this gives her the best shot at getting it right. By the end of day 4 accidents should be few and far between.



At first when she is wet do not rush to clean her up she has to realise that being wet is uncomfortable. I know this goes against motherly instinct but it is the only way to encourage her to stop what she is doing to use the toilet.



If you still have no luck then book her an appointment at the doctors to check for any underlying reason why she can not use the toilet.
