I'm in the middle of potty training my 2 yr old. she does great with number 1 in her big girl chair but number 2 has been an issue. She goes into a closet and pottys them pulls it out of her pull ups and plays with it!!!! I've scolded her and she knows its gross but still continues to do it!!! Does anyone else ever dealt with this? Any advice???

She will go thru stages, when shes here she will do very good (after a day or two coming home from daddys) I dont know how hes training her, he tells me one thing but does another. Its just very frusterating when I finally break her of it then she comes home with the habit again :(

Oh forgot to mention, after we would talk about it, and id clean the poo up, we'd get fav. dolly, and dolly would use the potty. With heaps of praise!!
"Good girl dolly!! But dont play with it dolly, its yuk. Now we get rid of it in the toilet.."etc..

My daughters just toilet trained! thank gosh, its a big learning experience lol..

My daughter used to love playing with her poop!! (before toilet training..)
But after continual, repeptative talking, it does work eventually!!
I used to explain that if we do poo, we need to call mum, so what do we say? *she'd say mum* and then id say yep. And so id say, well we need to do poo, now what do we say? *mummm!* and we'd talk and talk about it... then one day she started to tell me once she'd done poo!!
After that is when we startd to focus on toilet training, we used a potty for a week, now we use a toilet with a seat on it.
Now when she needs to use the toilet she tells me, poo mum or wees mum, and we go to the toilt together.
Its frustrating, and i noticed when i used to tell her off she would withdraw and do it more.. Thats why we would talk about it, say how yukky it was, and then talk about what to do when we've done/need to do poo.

GOODLUCK!! it can be very testing.

shell prob grow out of it with more practice on the potty. i guess just keep reinforcing that you go poos while on the potty and stuff.

Stephanie, I think it's funny sometimes... when my daughter first started playing with her poops I would tell her "Yucky, poopy goes in the potty" and we'd go to the bathroom and I'd make her put it in the potty and wash her hands very well. Now, that she is older and can speak a little more clearly she'll come to me and say Poo Poo Mommy and when she goes in her pants every now and then she'll stick her finger in it and run to me yelling "EEEWWWWEEEE" it's cute but gross and we'll go back into the bathroom take off the pull-ups and put the poop in the potty after she tells me where it goes. LOL It takes some time but she's gotten used to it. Good Luck!!

It's so good to know that my daughter isn't the only one who does this. I haven't found a solution to this problem yet, but I plan to now start using the advice that Sara suggested. Brooklyn never spears it on the walls or poops in the floor but she will reach into her pants and get it onto her hands and then run to me screaming Poo-Poo. This really is starting to drive me crazy, and I'm hoping that this is just something she will grow out of.

I've dealt with it with my nephew who is three now. My sister and two children moved to stay with me and my family b/c their dad didn't help out and she was falling on some hard times. So we started potty training my nephew at 2.5yrs and he got the hang of it fairly quickly but would still poop in his pants. The two younger ones were about 15months or so and when he would he would take it out and smear it on my walls. What we did with him was made him help clean it up. Using soap and water for him to help then later going back with a deeper cleaning product. It helped us stop him from doing it because he didn't want to clean it up anymore. Now I'm potty training my now 25month old and she'll drop her drawers and poop anywhere, I make her clean it up with a wipe and toss it in the potty and make sure she knows where it goes. I also have a 9month old son so I don't want her making poops in front of him for him to get into YUCK!! Good Luck! I would say to make her help you clean it up.
