How do you potty train a three year old girl?

Model the behavior and repeat regularly. Take your girl to the

potty every hour. If you're the mom, you go "potty" too at the same

time, even if you do not have to go. Sit for 5-10 minutes; say

"Mommy has to potty too!" Do all the routine actions; get toilet

paper, or whatever your habit is. Get up; pull up your clothes.

Ask, "Did you go potty, too?" Help her get redressed. Wash

hands--even if no one did anything. "Now that we went potty, we can

go (play; read a book; play outside)." Important-- repeat every

hour or so, over and over and over. She'll catch on.

If she has an accident, do not scold. Just say, "You need to go

to the potty when you have to 'go'." "Come tell mommy when you need

to go."
