My DD knows when she needs wee/poo but won't tell me all the time and when she does and I try and get her to use potty/toilet she will not sit down for more than 10secs which either causes wee/poo on floor or tanting as I try and reason with her to try the potty/toilet. Help?!

Special toilet/potty story? Would need to be hidden and reserved for potty time.
<whispers> in front of special dvd just to demonstrate that if she stays on and does something she'll be rewarded (e.g. sticker or <whispers again> chocolate button)

I second the chocolate. My DD1 did something similar, until I introduced chocolate buttons as a reward for doing something in the potty... she only ever had two accidents after that!

yeah potty training is def one of the times when bribary works a treat (excuse the pun!) I only gave one choc button for a wee and two for a poo and did this for about 3 days before telling dd that oh dear they have all gone!!!

It doesn't have to be chocolate.

My 2yr old is 6 days into potty training.
She was happy with an apricot covered in yoghurt as a treat.

When I ran out I gave her raspberries.

However she was also chuffed with a sticker.

You could do stickers and when she fills chart with stickers she gets a present of her choice.

Why not just leave it for a bit?

Try again when it has been her idea to use the potty/toilet rather than yours.
