How to get my 3 yr old daughter to stop peeing her pants?
My 3 year old has understood the concept of using the potty for about 2 months now, but still has at the very least one accident every day. Sometimes she does try to make it to the potty but she isn't fast enough, this I can understand. But the times when she just stands there and pees herself are frustrating and confusing for me. How do I get her to stop doing this and use the potty all the time?
She's still very young and learning about things. Children differ at what age they are physically capable of recognising the need to empty their bladder. Sometimes, they are too caught up in playing to pay attention to when they need to go, a gentle reminder every now and then may help.
Your daughter is doing well with training. Give positive feedback when she uses the potty, this stage will probably pass sooner than you think. Keep up the good work.
She is just learning to recognize her body signals. It takes time and patience. If she is at home with you, take her frequently to the potty. Let her go with you when you have to go and say it out loud when you feel the urge coming on. She will begin to realize that her body will let her know. It's best not to show discouragement when she has an accident. I'm sure she doesn't like peeing her pants and the feeling of the wet clothes. Use positive reinforcement and perhaps the promise of new, favorite panties for a no accident day. Good luck, you'll soon be through this stage! Enjoy her at every stage, they group up fast!
The responsibility at this age rests with you. She needs to be taken to the bathroom every hour or two depending on her liquid intake and simply remind her to go. "Come, let's head to the bathroom."
Get her some fancy underpants that she might really like to wear but they have to stay dry. If she is still having trouble back up a little bit and get some pull ups for another couple of months. Everyone matures at different rates. Most importantly relax and don't let it get to you, this will pass quickly.
I agree with duffsmum you need to be still taking her to the toilet every hour or so to help solidify the hard work you have been doing. You could give her a sticker for her toilet chart each time she is dry till lunch time and another for her being dry till dinner as well as taking her all the time to the toilet. Once she has enough stickers you could buy her a toy or book or take her somewhere special.
You can check out my hub on this if you would like to. It is based on how I was toilet trained many many years ago. Of course I tweaked it so it would fit my son when I used it. Many of my friends have also used it and tweaked it for each of their children. The most important thing to remember is to not get upset or angry when these accidents happen.

This is completely normal, and boys do this for even longer! She's not doing anything wrong, and all you need to do really is clean her up, without expressing disappointment or frustration (because both can lead to your daughter feeling anxious, in turn leading to more accidents), and giving stickers for every successful potty or toilet trip. She'll be dry all the time eventually. It doesn't matter how long it takes her.
My boys all trained really quickly during the day, but took a very long time for them to be dry at night because they are all such heavy sleepers, still wearing pull-ups when they were four, five, six. It's no big deal. It's only a big deal if you make it into one. It's just wee! Don't let anyone suggest that you're failing if your daughter has accidents, because you're not.
