My 3 year old daughter is toilet trained but is too lazy to go and just wees wherever she is. Can anyone suggest a way to make her actually use the toilet?

You just need to start taking things away from her that she really loves. Or you can offer her a reward if she goes so many times in the toilet in a week. Also you can make her run around with no clothes on cause she will not like being naked and actually seeing the pee on her. You could also use time outs and putting her down for nap if she decides to continue that behavior

Use a sticker chart, every time she uses the potty/toilet she can have a sticker etc...after xamount of stickers she can have a new toy i bought the toy before hand so my son could see what he was aiming for, in a week he was using the potty for his poo (which was our main problem). My son also went through a phase of saying he would poo in his nappy or pants and that I would have to clean it up - it's horrible I know but I told him if he did it he would have to clean it up himself...he didn't like the idea of that at all.
