I am a Aunt...not a Mom so let's get that out in the open right now. That being said I have a semi-custody agreement over my niece who will be 3 in September. She was totally potty trained a couple of months ago but has been slipping and now her mother has put her back in diapers completely. She tells me that when she's out and about my niece uses the bathroom most of the time but when they are at home she won't go to the bathroom. What gives?
1. I know she gets spanked for going to the bathroom in her pants no matter where she's at.
2. They live in a mixed household, disabled grandma, low life uncle and his baby mama and a couple month old infant.
3. the house is always a mess etc etc

It's just a bad situation all the way around. ANYWAY...what do you think? What gives? Any tips, ideas...help :( Thanks guys.

It just bothers me that we don't have those issues at my house, but maybe you are right it's an attention thing because when she is at my house my whole world revolves around her and only her. I don't know...it just sucks because she won't let me have her this month because she "doesn't understand where these potty issues are coming from". but thank you for reaffiriming my beliefs.

she is doing it for attention even negative attention is better than no attention and putting her back in diapers just tells her it is ok to go in her pants.
