Ok, so we talk about homeschooling being life long. We start educating them from the moment they utter their first cry... maybe even in the womb.
So, with that being the case, then potty training problems are not really off topic for homeschooling right?
Anyway, My son... he woke up one day, asked for underwear and I put them on him. He had MAYBE 2-3 accidents over a 3 week period and was viola, trained. Both poop and pee. He was just over two years old.
He is my second of four. I have another boy, but he's just turned 1 and not there yet.
I can't tell if it's my fault, or what, but my girls give me YEARS worth of potty accidents... not just pee... no... and not just accidents... and they won't come get help to get cleaned up. They just let themselves sit and steep in it, no matter how disgusting it is!
I'm at the end of my rope dealing having dealt with it with my now 11 yr old for about a decade... my 5 yr old was trained for over a year, then she started using it to "get even" with her Dad and I whenever she was angry with us or in discipline. We would just let her clean up her mess and sit back in time out again...
Then, she started doing it all the time... we are talking about 70% of the time, she has an "accident"... I make her go sit on the potty regularly.. I've had her evaluated... we've checked into everything medical... Doc just says let her grow out of it.
Will she be almost 10 like her sister was when we finally got it broke????
I'm trying to be a good mother and not get so tired of cleaning up crap (like I had to today)... but she made the biggest mess she ever made today... pooped her pants TWICE... and kept playing in it. I was busy with other moms at a homeschool event and I could SEE her, but wasn't close enough to smell her.
Anyway, she had it smeared down both legs, up her back... all over her skirt and leggins, all over her shirt. I had to wash her clothes out by hand and clean the bathroom of the Christian Library we were at.... I had to throw away her panties, etc... It was dried to her legs, she had peed on top of it once or twice... and we weren't there more than an hour and a half before I discovered it. I disinfected their entire bathroom from the stall she smeared poop ALL over to the floor where she peed herself trying to pull down poopy pants...
I so want to understand and help her through this, but I'm really REALLY wore out and tired. If I take my attention off her for 30 minutes, she does this.
Help me... I really don't know if I can raise this kid. She needs some one better at this than I am.
