My 3 year old daughter (soon to be 4 ) still refuses to go to the bathroom on her own most of the time. We've done everything to encourage her without being punitive. She's back in diapers again because of the constant accidents and battles. I've decided to ignore it for now. Any suggestions as to where to go from here? Thanks!

Get the ebook Three Day Potty Training... it works. I had my son trained day and night at age 2, by day 2. He had accidents on day 1 and just a couple on day 2.... he's been trained for over a year now. If you go by the book you'll be successful just like myself and the other 30+ I've told (per the many emails I have gotten). I doubted this book, but I thought what do I have to lose, so I downloaded it and here we are. 1 week after potty training we went to Disney.... accident free all the way. No accidents since day 2.

My son is 3, will be 4 in december. The only thing I did was put him in normal underwear and not pull-ups. If he had an accident I didn't make a big deal about it because if I did it just made things worse. I also got a timer and when it went off (every 45 minutes) I would take a book to the toiet and read to him while he sat on the potty. Then I would praise him. Some advice my mum gave me, was to give him a litte extra to drink, just a couple of ounces. My son has been fully toilet trained for 3 months now and he doesn't even wear a nappy to bed. Just remember...... Be consistent. Hope this works for you. :-)

Thanks, Jan. How much did you have tospend to buy this book online? They're quoting me $24. Not too bad IF it works! Is this method easy to learn and to use? THanks again for your help.
