X-posted. Help! 2.5 year old hates and refuses the potty

Hey Everyone,


looking for advise from mommas that have been there done that. My DD is 2.5 and i tried potty training her about a week ago ( but then got really sick so had to stop) so i started back up today and she throws a kicking screaming fit if i ask her or try to get her to go potty. I knew she had to poop so i asked her over and over and tried to coax her to the potty and she said she couldnt so sure enough about 10 mins later she was pooping in her pants!! All morning she hasnt gone pee and just now i kept asking and bribing with candy and stickers and i finally tried to pick her up and set her on the potty and she screamed and kicked and threw a fit so i left her alone and sure enough she started peeing all over the floor and was bawling. I dont know what to do :-(
She has peed once on the potty and she got TONS of praise and stickers and candy and all that but now she has done this today and i have no idea if i should keep pushing it or just wait till she gets a little older. She wont tell me when she poops her diaper or pees. She infact will tell me she didnt when she cleary has.
I feel like a terrible mother for not having her potty trained already She is a very very bright and smart little girl but somehow the potty thing is just not there?

Update: 9/10, I ask her everyday if she wants to wear panties and she throws a fit still. :-/

I don't think you should bad for not having potty trained a 2.5 year old. That's still early for many toddlers.

I may be in the same boat. DD turns 2 at the end of the month. I thought it was a bit early, but she was having great success and for two full days she used the potty without an accident. Then she had an accident and then another and now doesn't want anything to do with the potty. She'll even start crying. I can't even tempt her with chocolate M&M. It's a potty regression. I'm not going to force her or even push her, or it might turn into a power struggle. I simply offer a pair of panties and a diaper, and she chooses the diaper. Oh well. She'll train when she's ready.

I hate to say it this way, but ur doin' it wrong. LOL I say this with love because this is exactly what I would have tried if I hadn't read up and put a plan together.

I bet your daughter is ready.

Read a few books and decide which "method" you are going to use. I suggest "Oh, Crap! Potty Training".

Good luck.

You're right she's ready. We gave her a couple days in diapers and we tried again. No resistance this time.
