Potty Training

I'm having a hard time trying to potty train Chrissa. It seems like I have tried everything and nothing works. It happens mainly at night sometimes during the day she doesn't want to stop playing long enough go to the bathroom. Pull ups don't work b/c they just make her pee even more b/c she knows the pull ups will catch it. Any ideas?

Try her in "big girl" underwear with a pair of those diaper covers for in the pool. In diapers and pull ups they're created so that it pulls the moisture away from their skin where as the underwear they can feel the wetness and it makes them uncomfortable. I used a reward system with my daughter. First it was if she sat on the potty for a few minutes usually about 10mins after a drink she'd get a sticker. We bought her "big girl" underwear that she got to pick out herself but we explained that she could only wear them if she went on the potty. It took a little while but staying consistent with it all and knowing not to punish her when she had accidents helped a lot.
