Why does my almost 4yo DD think she has to wet her underpants in order to change them??

Why can't she just put them in the laundry basket when I ask?? Is it vital that they be wet?? Ugh...

  • My almost 4-year-old went through a week-long stage doing this as well. I felt it was one of two things 1) a control issue -- she wanted to be in charge of WHEN she changed and 2) She was just too busy playing and didn't want to be bothered with the potty! G'luck!

  • I should've mentioned that this stage abruptly ended when I pulled out a pair of pull-ups and suggested we just "may have to consider having her wear them again." :-)
