My son is 3 years old and is potty trained. Like i said in one of my posts he most of the time has a BM in his underwear from nap even though i make him go before nap time.
yesterday after nap he woke up dry and no poop, i told him awesome job and gave him a big hug. He was so happy and as well as i was. i made meatloaf for supper and butter noodles. We ate like a family and about a half hr before my mom came to say hi, my son told me he had to poop. SO i took him and he did. I was so happy, gave him a hug and kiss, and high five and told him good job. then at 7pm i went up stairs to feed my 9month old son his bottle, and my 3 year old son was watching a show, while my husband was on the computer. I came down and i heard my 3 year old saying i need a bath and whining and holding his butt. (he normally gets a regular bath every weds and sunday, and then other days him and his brother just play in the bath water). I told him why are u holding ur butt and saying bath. He wouldn't answer me and just kept saying it. I then asked him did u poop in ur underwear and he didn't answer. So i looked and he did. I then asked him why did u do that, u knew daddy was in the computer room, u could of asked daddy to help u. so i took his dirty underwear and pants off, put his pull up on, gave him a spanking, made him help me clean out his dirty underwear, and went in the basement so he could tell daddy what he did in his underwear.
Daddy then told me i shouldn't of spanked him because if he does it again he will take it off and hide it because he will be scared of what his punishment should be, but did tell me that i should make my son clean it up with help.
I don't know did i overreact, because i was just mad knowing he was in the living room and daddy was in the computer room at the time, or because i am just sick and tired of cleaning poop out of his underwear.
What is the right thing to do in this type of situation. Should i make him help me clean it up, or just let it go and tell him it is the wrong place for his poop.
