It sounds cruel but I used to give my lo no option but to wear pants, and eventually she would wet herself. It sounds even worse that I didn't change her straight away when we were at home, as I wanted her to understand what it felt like to wear wet clothes. Eventually she started telling us she needed to go. She was very shy in asking us and she's almost 4 now and does still have the odd accident. They all have their own ways and do it on their own time But I'm sure shell get there. And lots of praise when she does go. We used to clap and cheer lol and high five x

I'm sorry I don't have any advice but wanted to say I have a similar problem with my son. The first time he peed on the potty he cried afterwards! I've tried making him go naked but he holds it for hours and hours. If he wears pants he just pees and then takes them straight off like he doesn't care. He really hates it and gets upset if I suggest trying the potty. I have left it a few weeks now with no pressure to see if he wants to go on his own but he will tell me he needs wee or poop and then do it without time to do anything or tells me straight afterwards. I am planning on starting again the hardcore way as I see no other option. We are expecting a baby at Christmas and so I desperately want him potty trained before. He has shown all the ready signs for months apart from his potty fear! You're not alone.
