Unless you can easily read HER potty signs, rush her to the potty before she relieves herself (Late Elimination Communication), then you really have to let her lead you. In my experience, rushing can only lead to set-backs.
This. She is still pretty young. It will come.

She's still young. I would wait a few months and see if she starts showing more interest. She may just not be ready yet.

I would absolutely wait! None of mine were ready to PT at that age. It's so much easier to just wait until they're ready, and it doesn't sound like your DD is yet.

Re: My 22 month old won't touch the potty chair

We blow bubbles and read books. One thing that helped me was, take out the word potty. So instead of sit on the potty, i say here come sit down here and ill read u a book, come sit down here and ill blow bubbles, she likes to pop them. Also i sit directly on the floor infront of her, when she wants down, no problem i put away the boom or bubnles as soon as i help her down, she cried more, i put her back on and quickly grab the bubbkes or book, she would cry and i kinda didnt hear her and would read anyway, or start blowing bubbles, took about 3 days, no stress. Now she walks me to the bathroom hands me a book, i take off panies or diaper and up on the potty she goes. Good luck!
