My son is pooping else where besides the toilet..... adult content

And its not that he doesnt know he HAS to poop in the potty. He has for two years. Just suddenly started pooping in random places. He blames it on the dog. We have a rat terrier and theres NO WAY its him LOL. He thinks its funny and I am so mad I could scream ladies!!!!! I have tried taking toys away, time outs and all I get are laughs from him. HE THINKS ITS A JOKE :(

  • Have you tried multiple disciplinary actions? My friends daughter use to smear it on the wall or throw it, so she'd strap/tape her diaper to her because nothing else worked (lol) Obviously that only worked for so long

  • One of my son's did this. He liked being the baby of the family, and was pretty much potty trained when he saw the pull-ups commercial that said "I'm a big kid now!" He didn't want to be a big kid, but he didn't want to poop in his pants either, so he'd go into the laundry room and poop on the we didn't have any pets at the time, so he couldn't blame it on them, and his brother's were older, I knew it wasn't them.....I'm afraid we moved and didn't have a laundry room anymore, and that was the end of it!!!!

    Good Luck, I sooo feel your pain!

  • I'd say reward Poops in the potty, and have him put on gloves and clean up the rest. If he gets a reaction from you (any emotional response at all) then he is getting exactly what he wants. Practice your poker face Mom,
