Ok so I'm currently potty training my daughter. I am putting her in her panties all day and asking her to go potty every so often. Well the other day I asked her to go potty and I knew she had gone not too long ago and she said she didn't have to go and was starting to fuss and I don't want to be too over bearing with it because I want her to not be afraid of the potty.



Well she and my son then were playing by the back door and she had a little accident but you could see by the trail she tried running to the potty and had pulled it all off and was sitting in the bathroom on the toilet and I was telling her good try it's ok.



my grandma comes in and goes THAT'S SO NAUGHTY SHE IS JUST BEING DEFIANT. MOMMY ASKED YOU TO GO AND YOU WOULDN'T LISTEN AND NOW YOU PEED ON MY FLOOR THAT IS SOOOO NAUGHTY.



she wasn't yelling but it was stern. My daughter then starts crying on the toilet. I have asked her time and time again not to interfere with my potty training and I have told her that it is not ok to get mad at her when she has accidents. My grandma is under the impression that my daughter is being hard headed and having accidents on purpose :roll:



I only come over every so often and I don't want to put her in diapers to come over and go back on the PTing. pull ups are just like diapers to her she wont take them off.

i say NEVER yell at them with potty training. my friend would yell at her son when he pooped not in the toilet and he started never using the potty. i think yelling does more harm then good

Don't go to grandma's if she can't respect you.

we are a very close family and my grandma is getting older so that is not an option for me. I sat down with her and explained it and if she does it again I can threaten to not come by anymore, but I'm not going to take that action immediately.

I'm so sorry you are dealing with this! I imagine it can be challenging trying to balance potty training your daughter and respecting your grandmother. Praying for wisdom and the right words!!
