Losing the will to train

Honest answer? Stop and wait a few months.

My DD went from not being ready to being ready overnight. And it was so easy. By the end of a week it was done and dusted. The only accidents were en route to the potty.

This was at just over 28 months but I was quite prepared to wait much longer if necessary.

Good luck.

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?
