Q&A: How can I get my toddler to stay on track with potty training?
We had two weeks of potty-training success with our 24-month-old daughter. But lately we've been asking her if she needs to go potty, or asking her to come with us when we go, but she says NO! We don't want to force her to sit on the potty, but how can we get her excited again?
Therefore, don’t set her up to say “no.” Just say, “It’s time to go potty.” If she balks, ignore it. Then in a minute or so, escort her to the bathroom to go on the potty. In time she’ll be telling you, “Mommy, I need to go potty.”
