Choose to Live to Fight Again Another Day

Thank you all for your potty training stories! It's good to know I'm not alone rather than just hearing "do this, don't do that!" From what I've heard and read, there really needs to be an interest on the part of the child and she just doesn't have it. She doesn't care if she's wet. She doesn't recognize that she's about to go. And, until she does, ain't nothin' gonna happen.

So, having seen no improvement over the last week, we have decided to table it for a month or two and then try again.

LOL - maybe if I tell her she's not allowed to sit on the potty anymore, she'll get interested? (Hmmm... is using reverse psychology acceptable on almost 2 year olds?)

I am on my 4th go round with the pottý and Greta does not care if she is wet or not...When she has to do a number 2, she prefers to brace herself against one of the dining room chairs and put her forhead down...I have tried books in the bathroom...Taking her when she is most likely to go seems to work the best...on waking up and then again at about 10:00...They have hung large photos of some of the kids at daycare sitting on their pottys and the kids have such a laugh seeing themselves on the wall...they want to sit in front of their own photo and "go"
