So my 2yr old son decided to poop on my carpet. This is my 1 child and im 21yrs old. This is all so new to me. What do i do? I kinda figured out that he is ready to b potty trained. How do i do it with out getting madd at him

#1 rule is you just can't be grossed out. It's a natural thing that we all do. Being grossed out leads to being upset. Then you can say things like: "uh oh No No PooPoo on the floor (pick up the poop with toilet paper/wipe and take it to the toilet with him)...PooPoo in the potty. You see the potty? Poo poo in the potty (nod nod)." LOL...

You can get him a training potty, although my son never used his. He preferred climbing onto the toilet...Talk with him about how you need to go, take him with you when you go, and talk about it, and even show him! The kid's gotta where mama's poops go! "Bye Bye PooPoo"

Another tip would be not to place your expectations too high. Each kid is different and yours might learn fast, but he also might take his sweet time getting the picture :-) So patience is key. If he still poops on the floor/not in the potty, just keep him in diapers until he shows interest in using the potty/toilet. Good luck!
