Thank you! Today I have waited for accidents or verbal cues before getting her to the bathroom and the only crying came as a result of chapped legs from pee (I’m trying aquaphor on them after we clean her up and that seems to help).Â Now, I remind and praise increasingly as I see signs and a few times today she says she has to or is ready to go, we get there and she sits, does not go (I praise her for getting there, dry undies and sitting) and then she has an accident.Â None of the pee has made it to the potty yet. Stickers or rewards for sitting?Â I feel like I’m having trouble with consistency here.
The Potty Wand seemed to be more of a distraction than help.Â She wanted it to be a “spelling wand” (think PBS–Super Why).Â Keep using it?
Finally, when things click (hopefully tomorrow) I understand I keep praising when she uses the potty for quite a while, but for how long do I keep “reminding” her to tell me when she has to go?
Thank you for your support!Â I hope this works before she gets sick of me!!
