hello doctor. my problem is a little weird but I want solution. my daughter is almost 3 years old and is not ready to be potty trained. she is showing stubborn behaviour for that like she literally says no I won't and she is very particular about what she says. when she says I have to do she does that anyhow and when she says no I won't means she won't unless she feels herself that thing to be done . now problem is how to make her mind to be potty trained?

Potty training can be very tough at times. This is a matter that has to be handled very carefully, without upsetting the child or scaring the child. What you can do: 1) Make going to the toilet fun. Let it be like a game. 2) There are many nice videos on potty training for children. Show her those 3)Ask her to train her favourite doll to go to the potty. you can play this game with her. 4) Make sure she is comfortable on the potty and the potty fits her well. 5) Every time she goes to the washroom and sits on the potty you can reward her by hugging her and saying how proud you are of her. 6) Talk to her about why she does not like to use the washroom. Do not: 1) Scold 2) beat 3) make potty training stressful Take care.
