My son is 22 months and fascinated with his poop. Every time he goes poop he shoves his hands into his diaper to pull it out and squish it in his hands. Then, he smears it all over everything he can put his hands on. He does this almost every time he goes! I get so angry now, because I've had to clean these messes 30-40 times now that I scream and yell at him. I can't control the volume of my voice when he does it! I've tried onsies, but he can get to the poop from the leg. Basically, if he wants to get to it, he will. I want to know if there is a way to control my anger better and how to make him not want to do it anymore. And, yes, I have considered that he's doing it for attention...
