My daughter is 29 months and shows all the signs of being ready to potty train. She wants to wear the panties and no diaper however, she will hold he pee until she hurts and just lets go. She does this with her poop as well. She will sit on the potty but then says she is done and gets up before she goes. If I try to get her back on the potty or try to get her to stay she has a fit and screams. Help me please. I have been doing a lot of laundry for the past week.
Toddlers sometimes associate their pee and poo as a part of themselves and don't want to give it up. Reassure them that it's perfectly normal and everyone does it. Maybe show her by letting her come to the toilet to watch you sitting and peeing. (It's obviously easier for boys to see this with Daddy)
You could try a tip that's on Our Potty Training Tips website which is:
Little White Lies
I once heard a father encourage his daughter to go potty by telling her that her poop feeds the fish and that if she didn't go the fish don’t get any food. A little white lie helped her get over the fear of sitting on the toilet by giving her something positive to think about.
I hope this works for you - good luck and let us know how it goes.

Your daughter probably is ready, however she has been trained to relieve herself in her diaper and no where else. Therefore, in order to train her to go potty on the toilet, you need to give her an incentive (a motive) to do it. I suggest a reward of some type. The reward will vary depending what your child likes. For instance, my son liked stickers and it worked for him, however for my daughter, not so much. I used skittles for her and it worked like a charm. So, figure out what motivates your child and use it. Once she starts going potty repeatedly on the potty, give her a reward every other time she goes. Then ultimately remove the reward.

Best of luck and please update us on her daughters progress!

I've collected the BEST most creative potty training tips I've found online, and I am sharing it with you to make potty training easy and fun for you! (Yes, it CAN be fun!!) So just read below:
Bribery IS everything- Those little tiny treats you give your son/daughter every time they succeed using the toilet are SO helpful and motivating! Just remember to brush their teeth really good afterwards. If you want to cut off the sweets- you can also give them stickers, kids LOVE stickers! If that doesn't work- try different treats and see how your kid responds to them. Pick his favorites ones and you're good to go.
3-5 M&M's will do the job
Hit the cheerio (for boys)- put 3-5 cheerios in the potty and tell your kid to aim at them when he pees. You are turning potty training into a game and your child will absolutely ADORE it!
Throw those cheerios inside
Music to my ears- Pick a song, or invent one and sing it to your little ones' every time they go to the potty. Sing a different one when they're done and let them know how well they did. It's funny, playful and makes a sort of a routine for potty time.
Sing, clap, dance! Have some fun for goodness sake!
Time to be creative- Put your kid backwards on the toilet, give them a water removable marker and let them paint on the cover of the toilet- it gives them a great thing to do while sitting on the toilet.
It comes off! Not to worry...
Portable- some kids have a preferred location to do their business. It can be everywhere from the common bathroom to their room, living room, kitchen, balcony etc. Buy a portable potty and place it in your kid's favorite spot.
Location, location, location

Best of luck,
