Okay, I apologize for this being so long, but I want to make sure I clearly detail the entire scenario so that I can, HOPEFULLY, get some help from all of you out there!


I have a 2 1/2 year old daughter

misstort6, Hi and welcome to the Toilet Teaching board.

At 2 1/2 many children are ready for potty training. One thing you may want to try is the naked method. Have your DD naked from the waist down. She will not like the pee running down her leg, and it will also help her see what is going on and understand what the feeling of needing to go feels like. Every half hour have her sit on the potty, and go from there. The first couple of days there are usually lots of accidents but you should see a decrease in accidents each day. As for rewards you may want use a trip to the park/playground, Chuck E Cheese, a play date, a new outfit, there are so many no food rewards. I hope that helps. Please keep us updated on your DD progress.
