I have been potty training my daughter for quite some time and now it seems to have gotten a lot harder. I tried that boot camp potty training thing, I have tried listening to other people like having her wear nothing or take her every 15 minutes to the potty. I have heard that potty training gets hard when something changes in their life, death, separation, serious things basically. She starts preschool soon after she turns three in December and really I am a bit worried she will not be ready by then. She really wants to go to school too and of course she has to be potty trained before she can.
I have also tried BRIBING her. You know, every time she uses the potty, she gets a cookie. But then I though, well she's going to think food is a reward. Then I did a chart. At the end of the week, we count up her stars and see what prize the number equals to. That seemed to have worked for awhile but now once again she had a set back. I have also read many blogs that say she will go when she is ready. I have seen 5 year olds still not potty trained...sorry but I can't wait that long.
I need some for sure fire ways to get this going and many parents out there will looove to read some advice as well. I am willing to try out everyones advice and then have a follow up blog on what worked and what didn't. So come on and bring it all on!
