How do I get my tween son to wipe after he uses the toilet?

He's 12 and Ive had this problem for awhile now. Just telling him to do it isnt working. I taught him how when I potty trained him and he was good with it until a year or so ago. I don't understand why he wouldn't want to be clean!!!

  • I was always in a hurry to get back outside and play with my friends so I didn't wipe as well as I should have. My mother made me hand wash my underwear and that made me do a better job. Do you have those moist wipes in the bathroom? Maybe that will be incentive. I know my grandkids complain if I run out of them!

  • You make him responsible for cleaning the bathroom.
