Need Help on eating habits, big brother problems and potty !

[deleted account] ( 6 moms have responded )

I have a 2 year old will be 3 yrs old on Nov. 10th.and his brother that is 8yrs old they are 5 yrs apart and its been really hard. My questions is I am so happy to have a healthily , caring boy but.. here it goes he is so loud and is at the stage that I am also trying to potty break him. He is doing pretty good at the first but his number 2 well he says it hurts to go on the potty? He will go outside like its nothing both 1 and 2? I need Ideas on how to make his voice ALOT softer, how him and his brother stop fighting( he is so boy that he is very rough with his brother and his brother is 5 yrs older?) and how to potty break him soon he starts preschool soon and I really think his attitude will change being with other kids and not be around just adults. He is the youngest child out of all grandchildren that start at 25yrs to him 2yrs there is 9 other children but he never sees them but once a while and its for a few minutes. So my thought was would it really help with him going to preschool or will it get worse with I know they learn other bad attitudes,etc. but I am thinking it will wash to help him and me to not pull my hair out right now with his voice being so loud and rough playing and potyy breaking,lol! Please give me ideas PLEASE! I keep teasing I need the 911 nanny,lol!

For the fussy food bit, My mum makes what she calles pasty pies, They are realy good if you want I can get the resapy for you. It has mince meat, Parsnip, Carrot, Onion, A bit of mix veg n tomato sauce/Ketchup. It is very healthy but it tastes realy good my son eats them n he is a very fussy eater too. Also have you tryd hiding veges in other things? I also make mini pizzas, Bread put a layer of tomato sauce on, Then add some choped up bacon piecs, Capsicum choped finly, Cheese greated n pineapple, Just put them in the oven untill the cheese melts n goes a lil brown. You can put the leftover pizzas in the freezer, Also good for the older one to take to school. They taste good hot or cold.

Toilet training takes a while n most people forget that every child is different. My son has boule problems, His bottom does hurt to go to the potty. He dose go at times. all you can do is keep trying, Maybe even get a cushi seat or a potty that is padded. He's bottom might be uncomfertable. My son's are 6 years apart. Tyler is nely 9 n Ryan is nely 3, Then I have Abbey who will be two n Nick is 4months. Abbey n Ryan are very rough.

With the loudness, That is nely every boy. I tought him inside voice ( Whisper/talk softly ) n out side voice ( LALALA ) realy loud, so that he understands the differences in pich. N then when you want him to be a little quieter tell him to use his inside voice. Keep in mind that there is no quick fix, N every thing takes time.

Yes he will learn bad habbits from pre-school, But you have to explane to him that these bad habbits are not acceptable n you will not tollerate them. ( in terms that he understands) If he persists with it just put him in his room n tell him that he can come out when he can be nice n quiet. All my children have differnt personalitys. Abbey is very stubbern but as soon as she realises she is not getting attention for the things she is doing she eventualy stops, Ryan I just put him in his room n tell him that he can come out when he can be nice n quiet. As long as you don't bring it up again or ask him if he is ready to behave, he is fine. He goes back to his normal self.

Thank you sooo much Monica, it has helped a lot I was just thinking I was going crazy! LOL!!! I am going to have his hearing checked for sure, duh I fell stupid there!I will try the cheerios also and buy a new potty that soft for him! I am excited for him to go to preschool next year like you said I think it is going to help him and us a lot! Play time for him and friends also. I have another question maybe anyone can help cause he also will not eat well ...but i have read some of these ideas on here and I am going to try them! Its so hard to get him to get anything but PJ sandwhiches, Peanut butter on a spoon, Fries with ketchup, Yougurt, beans by them self, and thats about it beside water and once in a while juice, I really am going to try some of these ideas, help if you think you have a great idea since you know a lil about my son just by this ? Thanks to all!!! This is the BEST site ever!

some kiddos just have a loud voice.... if theres is lots of noise maybe he needs to be heard by being vocal... maybe check his hearing @ the Dr's. office to rule that out... the potty thing everyone gets it in diffferent ways what may have worked w/others may not always work w/all.... try the cheerios method... put cheerios cereal in the toilet for # 1 potty, as for # 2 it he complains about it hurting than increase his fiber intake & cut back on the startchy foods ( ie... white bread, bananas) i could list of the startchy foods, but that would take a while : ) also may ur lil guy may not like the feel of ur toilet seat maybe try to buy one of those attatchable seats u can find them @ walmart, target, fred meyers ect... when ur lil fella starts pre-school alot of ur frustrations will feather way.... he will be around peers of his own age to play with and lots of activities to keep his lil mind busy : ) alot of potty issues will go w/the flow of his own peers... its like monkey see monkey do.... pre-school is from age 3-5.... also kiddos like to have a job around the house just to help out the good 'ol mommas out, it makes them feel extra special.... also there is some parenting materials that come in very good handy " love & Logic" works from birth & up just in case u want to check that out...... I hope i've been a lil bit of help.......
