My attempts at a strategy include the following:
1. Setting the timer every 20 minutes
2. Going potty WITH Emily. I found that she just hated to go potty, but if mama went on the big potty and Emily went on her training potty, she was OK.
3. Rewarding with M&M's...which I gave her one piece at the beginning so she could taste their goodness, and then I would reward myself every time I went potty, so she could see how the reward system worked.
It seems that even though we are going potty every 20 minutes, she will wait until mommy has pulled up her panties and them potty in her pants!!! And then she precedes to ask me to change her!! She has gone poo-poo in the potty before...a number of times in the past. But now that we are officially in the training zone...I GET NOTHING!!!
Who has suggestions for me? Do I take a break...Do I press on?
