I don't know what to do, I am gonna cry! sometimes she tells me sometimes she pooes and she says afterwards, with number 1 she is much better and seldom accidents, last week 3 days accidents free, then I dont know why she started to poo again, now her stools are a bit runny but still helppppppppppppppp

Maybe she is not quite ready to be trained yet. Some children are almost three before they grasp the idea. Make a decision what you want to do. If you decide to carry on then you have to expect a few disasters. Just keep reminding her that she is a big girl now and that she is wearing knickers. Ask her often if she wants the toilet and take her anyway every hour if she has not been and then every 15 minutes if she still has not been. When she does pee or poop in her pants dont rush to clean her up. Let her know how uncomfortable it is and let her sit for about 5 minutes before cleaning her. never use pull ups as this gives children the go ahead to pee in their pants. If you are getting nowhere in a week then stop and wait another month and try again.
