Many parents go through the problem of a child holding their pee, you are not alone.
The child at first is very respective to using their potty chair or potty seat and then suddenly something changes and they no longer will go on the potty. This is normal, although not a good thing to have happen, when a child is holding their pee, since this can cause other problems as well as mean that accidents are more likely to happen.
Depending on the age of your child when you are potty training them, they may go through a period of potty training resistance. This is not that uncommon to have happen with a child. This can be especially true when a child is two when they are potty training and going through the terrible twos as well. At this age, they are more likely to exert control over their environment by not wanting to learn new things or refusing to learn to do things differently. Again, this is normal to have happen in many children, because learning something new can be very scary for them and saying no is their only way of having any control over what is happening to them.
It is not uncommon to have a child that does not want to poop on the potty. This can be a very scary experience for a girl and there can different reasons as to why she will not go poop on the potty, but will pee.
Many times when children are potty training things happen that cause them to regress slightly, and sometimes regress completely.
5 Life Changes that cause regression:
