Day Two Didn't go much better than Day One. Accidents all over. Nothing in the potty. I wanted to give up all day long. I must have texted my friend (who coincidentally is doing potty training this week herself...with much better results) and told her I was going to quit about 10 times. Thank God she is there because I probably would have. My husband wasn't much of a support. Long day.
Basically I have decided not to give up for a few reasons.
She is getting the concept, just hasn't followed through yet.
She isn't upset by anything. If things were disturbing her and upsetting her, making the potty training negative I would most definitely stop. I just need her to do it once....so I can reinforce with positive rewards. JUST ONCE!!!
Also, she got into my rewards. I left the M & M's on the table and wouldn't you know I found them all over the floor. So M & M's are now off the reward list. Not much of a reward now if she had all she wanted today!
Big Girl Panties On
Running her to the potty when she is going (have yet to get anything in the potty)
Reinforce with Positive
I am personally exhausted and frustrated...but she isn't which is a VERY good thing. Unbelievable how this is emotionally draining.
Kind of ready to get off this roller coaster with one pee pee in the potty!
