LONG sotry very very short. I have my neices: Sam is 6 and Savanah is 8 my children are 3 and two. The 6 year old "forgets" to wipe her butt. She was being closly watched when she first arrived here for this problem and she was doing GREAT, so we stopped watching. Then I find 10 pairs of dirty underwear hidden since she was "forgetting: to wipe.
So, she has lost all TV, she lost being able to play soccer, for 3 days she was wiping, then she "forgot" again and now she has no panties and is in pull ups (this was warned not like I just handed her a diaper, it's a progression of losing things... anyway)
So, she is STILL "forgetting" to wipe her butt. She is 6 ya'll the fact that I have to have her butt up in the air at my face to wipe it is just nasty.
I am out of options. I have lost the power to punish, there is nothing left to "take away"... how to I change this behavior? I know it is for the attention but why does she only want negative attention?
