I haven't been on Cafe Mom since I was pregnant! Hello moms out there.
I have a set of 3 year old twin boys. I should've gotten the ball rolling much sooner with potty training, but I've really been working at it the past 4 months.
There is a definite problem though... and one that other moms I know say they've never dealt with.
They poo on the floor. And I just don't understand why.
We talk about it... my son Murdoc has used the toiled for number two, yet if he can get away with it he'll poo on the floor. And my other son Archer... no matter how much I've worked with him, told him how easy it was, always says he "can't" and cannot anwser why he "can't".
But what I don't understand is why they want to do it on the ground, and I just don't know what to do. I've tried talking to them about it. We're in an apartment and about to move into a home, and they're very excited. I told them this morning they can't "poo poo" on the ground at the new house, and then about an hour later while I was cleaning the kitchen it happened. I've tried to rationalize, tried to punish, tried to offer rewards if they stop... nothing...
Any advice? And I remember I left this site when I was pregnant because there were quite a few harsh moms with nothing nice to say and I hope this has changed. Thank you so much!
