Does anyone elses toddler have a toilet fetish! My son, if he gets even a split second of a chance LOVES to try and play in our toilet! I try to keep the door shut but we have 5 ppl living in my home and it seems atleast one point of the day someone forgets to shut the door all the way. How did you teach your child the toilet is not for playing in??

  • oh yeah! I have this weird thing about the bathrooms, It doesnt matter is i jsut cleaned them they are still dirty. So my 2 boys (21m and 3y) arent allowed to "play" in the bathroom at all! They go in there to potty, brush teeth, wash hands and take a bath... thats it! I am very vocal about people keeping the door shut when people come over. My MIL said my DH flushed a bar of soap and a rag down the toilet and flooded the house, so I really done want that happening to me. LOL But all kids like the toilet at some point, they are just fasinated by it. Totally normal!
