  • When he is finished wipe him, than next time have him do it, keep this up and eventually he will form a habit of it.

  • I bought my son those Kandoo wipes because he would never use toilet paper. Now he has these cool wipes all for him and he will use them. Try them to get him started and then he will have it down and be able to move on to toilet paper.

  • My daughter never wiped her ass at that age and probably didn't at 5 either. But good news--she is now a very independent 14 year old who can wipe her own ass and do her own laundry!
