Does anyone have potty training tips?


I have a two year old that is pretty stubborn about potty training. She loves imitating me, and sits on her potty, even pretends to wipe, but when I go to pull her pants down she freaks out and screams "no, no, no mama". Are there any tips or tricks anyone has to offer on this subject? Do I force it, or just allow her to come to terms with it on her own time? FYI she hates to be naked.

    I agree totally with Insightful Tiger--get them excited about it! But, it's different for everyone. Just don't wait too long to start potty training and never blame for mistakes/accidents. Good luck everyone!

    Three days sounds right--you want to create enthusiasm for them to potty train (let them choose their training potty in the toy/children's store), hype it up, don't force it, and never blame or show annoyance at accidents. Patience is a virtue. Luck!

    I have stopped pushing the issue and now she is imitating me again, and beginning to do it on her own, we high five after she pretends to go. Thanks for the comment!
