In Reply to: Potty training dilemma - help! (desperate) posted by Yvonne on July 20, 2000 at 08:14:23:

: I've finally getting down to potty training my daughter, who just turned 5. We tried half a year ago for a few months with no success, and now since huggies size 6 are getting snug, I figure it's high time.

: She is only slightly verbal. My problem is this: when we put her on the potty, she just holds it, no matter how long. Last night we did a "potty party" where she pretty much stayed in the bathroom for half a day, with snacks and juice. She held it for 10 hours! FInally in the last hour she started tantruming and crying, so we gave up because it was becoming traumatic. She was so uncomfortable, but she just would not go in the toilet! Shw trying pouring warm water, everything. Any ideas? This was an awful experiene. I should add that we've been habit training as well for about two weeks, taking her in for 5-10 minutes every 1-2 hours, with no success. She's very stubborn! We have the big-gun renforcer for when she goes (a mickey mouse lollipop) that we've shown her, but she just doesn't understand what we want.


How is your daughter doing? Did she learn how to potty? What did you do to help her?
