I babysit a 3 yo who will be going to school next year.
He isn't potty trained. He uses a sippy cup as a bottle, & has a blankie that he has to have all the time.
When I say he uses a sippy cup as a bottle, I mean he sucks on the sippy like a bottle until he goes to sleep. Should I allow this behavior or should I only let him to have his blankie & "cuppie" for naps?
As for potty training, his parents don't seem to be trying. They scold him for going in his pants & tell him he's bad. I don't agree with this. I've suggested a sticker book for good potty behavior & his mother thought I was nuts, telling me nothing worked because he is just too lazy to go & "he doesn't want to"
I just don't know what to do. Should I let him be a baby or should I attempt to help him grow up a bit even tho his parents let him do anything he wants?
