Will She Ever Potty Train

My dd is going to be 2 1/2 next month and refuses to use the potty. I feel like I have done everything to encourage and reward, but everytime I ask her if she needs to go or I try to sit her down on it she just says no or cries and fights me about it. She seems to be showing all the signs and I have to have her trained by this summer to get her into preschool. What should I do??

Does she like Sesame Street? If so, you might try the Elmo's potty time video. After watching it, my dd , who could have cared less about any rewards or encouragement, suddenly got very interested in the potty and at least peeing on it.

I saw it in Target the other day and almost bought it. We don't really watch Sesame Street but maybe we should. I am going to try again this summer when I am off work so maybe I can see if it will hold her interest. I swear if they made a Diego or Dora video she would be all over it. Thanks for the suggestion.

If she's making a huge fuss over it I would stop trying for a while...she will now be a__socciating it with stress and upset...leave it for a few weeks and start again....I always find it best to do it when you can totally devote 3/4 days at home to it....so maybe as you said in the summer....
