Pottey Training War

Amanda - posted on 09/25/2014 ( 1 mom has responded )




My son is 2 and intentionally is taking his diaper off and peeing on the floor or during time out... we were so closed to being potty trained this summer when he ran around naked outside and just peed. (looking back now prob a bad idea) whoops. suggestions? I am a stay at home mom so it's not in a public setting but still needs to end.

The problem is you can't really stop him, and you don't want it to become a big control battle since you can't win. I would have him help clean it up (obviously help wash his hands and everything afterwards) and if you can have him go sit on the potty and explain the floor isn't for peeing. If he does it during a time-out I would have him clean it up and then get another or a longer time out.

Try to give him extra attention when he uses the potty, maybe give him stickers when he uses it properly or lots of praise depending on what you do.

The best idea is to try and ignore the negative behaviors as much as possible and praise the good behaviors. I know it sucks but just remind yourself this process will end eventually.
