Okay I finally got my oldest son potty trained but here is the issue. He is now using going potty to get out of bed at night. We never had an issue with bed time before until I potty trained him. I don't want to punish him for wanting to go potty but he will go then 5min later tell me he has to go again and nothing will come out. What do I do??Answer Question

Start a routine playing hide the book. Get a book about going to bed. Tell him before you play, he has to brush teeth, go to the bathroom, take bath, THEN you hide the book in his room for him to find. He finds it, you read it and then IF he stays in bed, you will play hide the book the next night so he needs to make sure he has taken care of everything BEFORE he goes to bed. Put on a audio tape for him to listen to or soft music. When kids get into a routine and know what is expected, they seem to go to bed without problems. Here are some bedtime books http://www.cjkidz.com/parentsgrandparentsteachers.html (Click on Bedtime/Sleep/Afraid of the Dark) also on the bottom of the page is the link for listening library for audio tapes. Keep up routine for at least six weeks to build a habit.

I let Natalie go to the bathroom one time during bedtime. After that I tell her I have to see the pee or the poop or she goes to time out for not telling the truth. Its not that I am punishing her for going to the potty. That I want her to do but I do want her to tell the truth about it. Hope you find something that works for you!
