I have been trying to potty train my daughter over the summer to prepare her for nursery school. She started sitting on the potty for hours just in case she wet in spite of being told this was not necessary.
She feels very insecure when she wears pants. We have gone back to nappies and pull ups. She has started nursery and is the only kid who is not potty trained.
Now, she refuses to go on the potty and nothing I say can sway her. Explaining that, "You're a big girl now and big girls don't wear nappies" does not help. She gets very upset when I talk about the toilet or potty. She states, "I don't like the potty or toilet anymore".
She has no delay in her development. In fact, she is quite bright.
Does anyone have any advice on how to sway her without her getting upset? Her screaming cry when she is upset is unbearable.
Many thanks for your suggestions!
