I have been trying to teach Reese how to use the potty for over a year now! She absolutely will not sit on the potty anymore to pee. I have tried every trick in the book from offering rewards (candy and stickers), making a big deal out of any success, involving grandparents and family in her success, buying a second toilet that plays music and has fun toys, and even peeing on her potty chair myself to demonstrate how it works! In order to get her back to using it, I have been catching her mid-poop and getting her to finish on her potty in the hopes that succeeding at something will encourage her to use the potty to pee on also. Tonight the mess in cleaning up afterwards almost made me want to quit until she is 4 and ready to start school!
