We are having some success and some failures in the potty training department here at our house.
If Hoss has an accident he will remove his pants and underwear and come and tell us he pee pee'd or poopy'd. For some reason he is not interested in using the potty each time and definitely does not wish to use the potty for poopy.
It's tramatic here. Screaming and crying happens if we even consider suggesting he sit on the potty to poopy.
Bribing isn't working.
Discussing being a big boy isn't working.
Cleaning up his messes isn't working. He actually enjoys this process.
I'm pretty much just letting him make messes. And we clean them up each time. Each time we discuss the same thing, where to go pee pee and poopy. Each time Hoss says, "da potty." He definitely understands the process, he just doesn't want to follow it.
I purchased a game Hoss has shown interest in, Brown Bear and Polar Bear. He knows we have this game and he knows that when he poops in the potty he will get his game.
He is giving me his undivided attention when I talk about this, so I am hoping this will be effective.
Hoss specifically has his accidents in his bedroom. We moved his potty chair to his bedroom since he will sit on the big potty most of the time with our help. Then he threw a fit when he couldn't sit on the "wittle potty" downstairs, so the potty moved back.
As soon as I'm done with this post I'm taking it back upstairs. Maybe he will eventually start using it appropriately.
