I have a 2 year old girl that does not want to be potty trained. My 4 year old girls was potty trained at the age of 2. My question is why does my youngest daughter not want to go to the potty like a big girl? She is wearing pull ups. She was doing good for awhile then she went back to using the bathroom in her pull ups. IDK what i am doing wrong or what i am not doing at all. Any advise would be so helpful. Thanks!!!

Same with our daughter. I have also tried the reverse psychology and told her when she potties in her pull ups that means she really is a baby and needs to go back to diapers. We keep both in the house for this reason.



I also found that with my daughter she drinks a lot of fluids so I have to set a timer for 45 minute intervals, take her to the potty and then leave the room to see if she goes (she would play if I stayed in there). I use the big potty and not a trainer so that she can't get down when I leave the room.



I also have been told that most kids don't really train till around age 3 so they will do it in their own time. Good luck.
