I would like to work on PT with DD while my husband is away for 4 weeks. He's not very patient and I do not want his attitude that to hinder her from using the potty.
I tried this past weekend to let her run around in "pretty panties" and things were going well until MIL showed up. She insisted I run the faucet to help DD "get the urge to go". I tried to explain to her that the point of putting her on the potty every half hour or so is not to necessarily to "go" and that at daycare they are not going to run the damn faucet every time they sit her down on the toilet! The next time DD sat on the potty, MIL flushed the toilet again to help DD "get the urge to go" (I was unaware that MIL had put her on the potty). Of course that freaked her out and she refused to sit on the toilet and also her little potty that does not flush. At that point I felt like forcing her to sit on the potty was a losing battle and I didn't want to do more damage, so the diapers came back on.
Other than forbidding MIL to visit for the weekend, does anyone have suggestions on how to get a hesitant toddler back into PT? She's definitely ready, but like I said I don't want to do more damage and have her afraid of the potty.
