i found with my kids letting them decorate their potty with stickers worked well and a who lot of persistance and constant asking do u need to go worked

although it's a lot of mess in the beginning, my first 2 kids were potty trained this way. when i ran out of diapers, i just get a whole bunch of hand me down underwear, and let them wear it through out the day. both of them started realizing that if they don't run to the bathroom or tell me they gotta go, they'll get yucky. we throw away the poopy ones and both of them would get upset that we had to. so i tell them, well, keep them clean! worked with them!! and don't worry, your little girl will do great!!!

Elmo Potty Time is a great dvd and really got my son interested into going to the potty himself!

My son was a little older than 3 when he was completely out of diapers. I stopped worrying. I knew he wouldn't be starting school in diaps or pull-ups. He would catch on. And so will your little girl. I also had to stop worrying about what other ppl might think about a kid that age still not potty trained. I really saw a difference when I announced that I had to go 'potty' and then took him w/ me when I went; in addition, I asked him about every 15min if he had to go. GOOD LUCK!!
