Ok so i posted the same thing the other day but wasnt sure what i was doing at that point so im posting this again just in case i didnt do something right the first time because no one commented on it. I have a 3 and a 1/2 year old that will go to the potty at school and at day care but will not go at home. We have tried everything candy, money, toys. You name it im sure we have tried it. It is so bad that she nows when she has to go i went and bought her some under wear i let her pick them out even though they were more money then i wanted to dspend i got them cause thats what she wanted and we got home and put them on her right away. When ever she had to go potty she would stop look down spread her legs and watch her self pee in the floor!!!!!! I need help big time cause she will be in the 4 year old pre school next year and she has to be potty trained by then or she will not be able to attend!!!!!!!!!

Hi JDaw. I can't help but laugh cause I am keeping my 2 year old grandson, and sometimes we will let him go without a diaper for a few minutes because his little but tends to get red so we let him rest from a diaper. They are teaching him potty training at day care, but he does the same thing at home. He starts peeing and no matter what you say, he just pees and loves watching it and tries to pee on any toy in front of him on the floor. By the time I can grab him and take him to the po9tty chair, he won't do anything else or can't. He's so cute. I'm sure things will work out for your daughter by the time she gets to pre-school since she is already being trained at daycare. If she will go at day care, she will probably want to go at preschool. I wish you the best. It will work out. Don't worry!

That is funny about him wanting to pee on everything. And my daughter is already in pre school it's just a pre pre school. It is for 3 year olds to under stand what to b looking for in real pre school and she uses the potty there she just has to wear dippers at home and pull ups at school just to make sure she don't wet her self by mistake she some times does while they are down for a nap but other then that she does fine for them. I'm almost wondering if I should just leave her out of her dippers all together and just try rewarding her for not peeing on the floor like go get her own little potty for the living room so we now when she really uses it what do you think? Do think that might work? Or do you have any other suggestions I might try?

Your little one sounds stubborn like my little one was. Nothing worked with her either I thought. One day I got so frustrated I told her I do not care if you stay in diapers until your 20! Your gonna stay a baby because only babies wear diapers. She did not like the idea of being a baby. After that she came and told me she had to go potty and every time she went she said am I a big girl now mommy? Lol. She hated me saying she was a baby so much that she went on the potty and only had one accident the whole time! No accidents at night or anything. Thank God it worked!! Good luck I hope it works for you too.

WOW thank you for letting me now. Iam so goingto try that. I hope it works like it did for you. Did you still put dippers on her at night or did you just leave them off of her? I have never thought about doing that before i mean we have said things to that effect but not really making it a big deal. Ill let you now how it works out for me wont be able to really start on it until the weekend but ill let you now. Thanks again.

I'm a little confused. Your daughter uses the potty seat at preschool but she doesn't when she's at home? If this is the case, then I don't see why she will not be allowed to attend next year. Well, in any case, maybe a potty training seat might help. Well, it did for my son. We started him off at the age of 3 (some say we could have done it earlier). It took him a year to be weaned off from the chair. Although we have to use a potty ring to put on the regular toilet seat. One thing good going for you is that your daughter goes to the potty at school. At least one problem is solved. Usually, most parents have the opposite problem. Anyway, you might want to be a little firm on her that she has to use the potty seat if she wanted to go. When she's peeing on the floor, bring her immediately to the toilet or put her on the seat if she's already in the bathroom even if you both get wet. Just keep doing this until it sets in her mind that this is what she should be doing. Hope this helps a little :)

my 4 yr old just kind of picked it up actually ut she was tired or wearing her diper she hated it sooo much. now she will still wet the bed at night and have an accident here and there (sometimes i think she does it on purpose but i cant prove it) but for the most part she goes. now my 2 yr old hates dipers and when she is at my neighbors and she will go potty as she needs to but at home shed rather do it on herself or my floor (which gets old after a while of cleaning it up over and over. all i can tell you is when she is at home just keep asking her over and overif she has to go potty. that will remind her that she has to go and yes sometimes she will say yes and not go and others shell say no and go on her self but by you asking her she was reminded and will most likely go and learn what it feel like when she does need to go. as long as we remember to always ask my 2 yr old she will go at home on the big potty.
