Why does my 2yo girl want to potty on the floor?

It could simply be because she is not really ready yet. Some kids are ready before 2, others not until they're 4 (https://tantrum.xyz/posts/how_to_potty_train_6_hacks_255). Does she just lack the control or is she actually refusing to use the potty? If it's the former, then it may just be that she's not ready and you just have to be patient. If it's the latter there are various things you can do to encourage using the potty. Make sure there's a lot of praise and cheers when she gets it right. You could even start a reward system e.g. stickers on a reward chart. Another possibility it to take her to go to the shop choose her own potty. She's more likely to use something if she chooses it. Good luck!

Hi Mommyoftwo - is there some more context to this? Is she doing it deliberately or is it an accident?

Because kids are gross!! I'd put her back in nappies and give it a month or so before trying again. She doesn't seem ready so give yourself a break and try later! Good luck 👊🏻
