Obviously this is not about the boys.
Anna turned 3 in April, and is still not potty trained. This wouldn't be a big deal except that she can't move to the 3 year-old class in school until she's out of pull ups. All of her friends moved up in June. I walked into her classroom today, and was greeted by the sight of adorable little toddlers about half her height, who probably can't yet speak in sentences...and who are now in her class. Anna is super bright and well articulated for a 3 year-old, and can speak in paragraphs with well thought logic. I don't understand how being in a class with kids a year younger than her can help anything. We consistently reward her when she does sit on the potty. She knows she'll get a treat, we'll celebrate, and when she's potty trained she'll get a kitten. We've used stickers and candy. We offer her ample opportunities to sit on the potty, as does her school...she'll now sit on it, but won't go. I don't know what's holding her back, but I know it's under her control and she'll do it when she feels like it. The pediatrician said that kids don't go to kindergarten in pull-ups, and not to worry about it too much...that's great, but it's not going to catch her up at her daycare, so I am going to worry about it. She needs to be with kids her own age. Any outside of the box potty training tips would be greatly appreciated, as I feel like we've tried everything else!
