Ok, this soulds insanely silly. In fact, I cannot believe I even have to type this or ask for additional advice on this but nothing I do work. My 7 year old son basically refuses to wipe his butt!! I have done everything. stayed in the bathroom with him, walked him through the process, told him what to do, done it for him, made him call for help if he needed it, bought him baby wipes to help him, when it was bad made him go back to pull up's for a day or two. Recently, I have even had to refuse to let him play with friends when his brother goes out to play. He thinks it is a joke.
I will say, I am his step mother and not had him from birth. He does not know his real mother and lives with his dad and I full time. We went back to the basics just so I knew he knew how to "take care" of himself back there. Nope.... he don't care. He will sometimes say "it's to hard". But he always says that to everything. He is the cutest kid ever and should have his own tv show with the things he says but no one wants a stinky booty! I'll take any help or advice to get this kid to wipe his butt!!!!
