Help! We started potty training a week ago (28mths) but it doesn't seem to be getting any better. We are using all of the tricks (stickers, bribery...) and she clearly knows when she needs to go as she starts whimpering and hopping from foot to foot, but refuses point blank to go on the potty. Then the inevitable happens and there are tears. I am ready to give up but is that worse? And to complicate things, the childminder is doing it in the week and has to put the nappy on for school run etc. I don't see an alternative - I can't take a month off work! We haven't been able to go out of the house the last 2 weekends. Miserable. Any ideas?
