She will walk as far as being in front of it and looking at it but will not turn around and sit. We usually stand there and hug and then I kind of dance with her and turn her around . This can take at least five minutes or more. Once she is turned around and has one hand on the safety rail on the wall and one on the toilet hand rail she sits down very nicely and she is ok.
This is has been going on for almost a year. I have removed a little basket from the back of the toilet that I had all her toiletries in thinking that might be scaring her but that didn't help. She doesn't do it all the time, but most of the time.Thanks for any suggestions.
