kalex00, Hi and welcome to the Toilet Teaching board.

Have you read some potty books (ex Once upon a Potty, Potty Time, ect...)to your DD? Have you watched any DVD's with her (ex Elmo's Potty Time, ect...)? If you have not I highly recommend starting there. Another suggestion would be to take your DD in with you when you go potty, and explain to her that everyone uses the potty. One last suggestion is to allow your DD to pick out the potty or seat insert that she would like use, along with one package of underwear that she would like to wear when she is ready. I hope that helped. Please keep us updated on your DD progress.

Hello Kalex,Next time you buy her pull-ups,buy a small pack of one size to small for her,and tell her,she has grown to big for them,and if she wants to wear anything,she will have to wear the thicker cloth training pants.


As she is three years old,try giving her pennies for peeing and pooping in the potty.say,one for telling you she needs to go,two if she pees in the potty,and 5 if she poops.


I hope this helps.


Please keep us up-dated on what you try and her responces


Many Blessings.
