I potty trained my daughter without the help of books at 18 months old. She was fully trained by the time she reached two and yes that was threw the night.

Don't force it upon her, make it more of a game for her at frist. In the morning when she is still a littlw drowsey tell her to sit down on the potty with you (your sitting on the adult potty) and tell her she don't have to go potty just to sit and relax and wake up a bit. Do it threw out the day and everyday and sooner than later she will get the hit.

If she don't feel comfortable doing it after a few days she just isn't ready, they say that most kids are not ready until they are almot 4!

Good luck! Oh and a reward chart always works!

You wait until she is a little older.

Then, get yourself a good book on potty training at the library, and do what it says.

No problem, My neice was forced and she too still wets the bed. It's a hard task but you can do it! Just stay stong and take it slow.
