Is Amaya close to those kids? Maybe that's part of the problem? Kids copy, (at least I think they do) so if she's around others who aren't potty trained, she'll think that she doesn't have to either, but if she's going to be in a class with kids who are the same age, or maybe younger who go to the toilet she might be impressed by that and she starts going..?

Nope the only kids she associates with are her siblings and cousins on her fathers side. No idea if Stella is potty trained or not yet. Honestly I think she’s taking her time because my dad has been forcing her to grow up. He was buying her stuff like puzzles (not the wooden baby ones legit 48 small piece puzzles) and like matching games all before she was even one.

Who was Stella again? (I'm sure you've told it, but I don't remember)
Huh, even though she's smart, a baby can't figure out things like that.. Your dad is weird..

Stella is the sister that’s the same age. And yes he is. My mom thinks it’s that too. My dads nonstopped pushed her so now she’s making us wait on the potty until she feels ready. I get the whole wanting her to be smart etc but he’s got her watching science shows, telling her how she’ll make a great doctor etc..almost like wanting her to live out his dream and I want her to do what she wants. I honestly think she’ll be a vet or something to do with animals.

to Amaya!
Don't think you can push a kid, that only backfires! She definitely has to go and live out her own dreams. If your dad pushes her into medical school when she's 18, and she doesn't like that, you get one very unhappy girl later on..

Yep and this is why we now have the potty issue.

Tell your dad to suck it up and just let her be. One day you'll find her sitting on the toilet by herself, or trying to get on it..

Probably but I would prefer her at least day trained before vacation I don’t mind her needing the pull up for the plane or trip home but other than that I’d like her willing to use the potty...

It would be nice not having to change that pull up.
