Please help! my daughter is 3 and she does not go to the bathroom in the toliet. I asked her where do u go if u have to go peepee or poopy and she knows in the toliet but she does it in her pull ups still. I do not understand. When i was out of work for a while because i got hurt at my job she was doing so well in the toliet then when i came back to work its like she was mad at me and now not doing it as much. Please any advice will be great. Thank u

what i did with two of my kids is when they made a mess in their underwear is stand them in the bath tub and have them pull off their own underwear. They really didnt like this so after a few times they went potty in the toilet. I know its a little odd but it works. My children are 3 and 4 and they are doing great.

Hi Jessica, been there done that i do understand, my middle child was the same, the only thing that worked for me was i returned her to underwear not nappies, it made her uncomfortable, PLUS i used a reward chart , i stuck it up in the toilet and each time she went to the toilet i got her to put a stamp on it, when she reached a certain amount that you set, i took my girl to the shops to pick out a special "well, done, big girl" gift.. it seemed to work, and all was happy it took about 5 months but finally a happy ending, hope this helps and all the best with your little person :)
