She probably isn't ready yet. My twins weren't potty trained until a month before they turned four. And my other child wasn't trained until a few months after turning 3 yrs. I would talk to them, got underwear, take them with me to the potty, etc. Eventually, they felt they were ready and told me. When they told me they were ready they put on their underwear and were day and night trained. They have a few accidents once in awhile, but nothing serious.



I would say she isn't ready. Be positive. Don't make her hate it. As my ped said you don't see any high schooler's graduating in diapers (unless there are issues).



You can also talk to your ped if you have any serious concerns.
