My daughter is 3 next month and REFUSES to use the toilet or potty. She doesn't have accidents, but when she is not wearing a nappy, she holds it in. Last Thursday she held it in for seven hours, and in that time she had a cup of milk, a cup of juice, and heaps of water.
She will tell me "Mummy, I am not a baby, I can wear undies today" but then she holds it in and flat out refuses to use the toilet. I have tried just leaving her and waiting for her to have an accident, but we get nothing.
I have tried reward charts, bribery, sitting her there and pouring water slowly into a bowl in front of her.
I know plenty of kids who are "not ready" and have accidents every hour, but I don't know of any other kid who is flat out refusing.
Suggestions? I am starting to think there is something wrong?
