GRRRR!!!! 2 steps forward 3 steps back (vent)
Why is it my eldest is a perpetual cycle of 2 steps forward 3 steps back but my youngest trained herself?
As of right now, my eldest has stopped having accidents at school but she has the poop accidents at home all the time. I've tried everything else so I decided to try rewarding my youngest everytime my eldest had an accident, seemed fair to me and it pisses my eldest off, so I was hopeful it would work. but my youngest is quickly earning quarters and there is no stopping my eldest.
I'm going to try poop jail AGAIN during Spring Break (2nd week in April). If it doesn't work this time it's going to be a long summer of no swimming for her till she stops, IDK what else to do.
She has an accident I just tell her in a bland voice to go get cleaned up, thinking maybe it's an attention thing with her. I even tried to reward her with extra special mommy time and it worked for a few days but then back we slide. I'm going to talk to her pediatrician about it again but the fact that she can go long enough to get a reward and almost instantly slide back says to me she is in control of this problem.
I just recently found out I'm pregnant again and the two of them are so excited over it. I've asked her if she is planning to still have accidents when the baby comes and she's told me no. She starts kindergarten in September and I'm worried that she's not going to be seen as the smart little girl she is because of this. Her Pre-K teachers don't understand why she does this because they see how smart she is (it's been brought to my attention).
It's frustrating and at this point IDK why I'm here except I really needed to vent, because I want to stay consistent and not be reactive, so instead I came here, LoL.
