Give her time. If you have a potty chair leave it out in the living room and just let her be around it and get familiar w/ it. Encourage her to come to the bathroom w/ you when you go (if she doesn't already follow you in there) and to try to use the toilet herself. If she resists... drop it and say 'maybe next time'. Relax. You aren't a bad mom. Bodily functions are one of the few areas in a child's life where they have complete control, so let them. Patience is key. She'll get there when SHE is ready.
