Quoting Lady GooGoo™:" I'm impatient, I'd sit them down for 5 minutes at a time."
Quoting Kelly&Coralie:" I never MADE her sit on it. I would ask if she thought she had to go. If she said yes, then she would ... [snip!] ... down. If she peed, great! If nothing happened, great! I think forcing them to sit for any length of time is a terrible idea"
Quoting Kimber-lily:" I never make my kids sit on the potty. I let them sit when they want to. And they get off when they want. ... [snip!] ... in a week just after her second birthday. My little one took 3 weeks to potty train, also just after her second birthday."
Quoting Secret Service:" she never tells me when she has to go =/"
Quoting Secret Service:" how often?"I would ask if she needed to potty about every 15 minutes. If she said yes, I'd wait for 5 minutes or until she peed.
Quoting Kelly&Coralie:" Maybe she isn't ready to be potty trained? I just kinda let Cora do it herself and we never had ... [snip!] ... one was when she was sick so I don't count it. Ask if she wants to try, or if she thinks she has to go. Just follow her lead"
Quoting Kimber-lily:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Secret Service:</b>" mine is over 3 and no where near potty ... [snip!] ... won't be in diapers forever. Have you tried sticker charts? 6 stickers = a prize. Let her go without a diaper while at home."
Quoting Secret Service:" well you see the thing is she doesnt wanna wear a diaper anymore. Shes peeing everywhere except the toilet lol. She takes everything off in the middle of the night too."
Quoting Lady GooGoo™:" Also when first potty training, give plenty of liquids so they have plenty of chances to pee in the potty throughout the day until they start to tell you on their own."
