Potty Training Saga...

Can someone please explain to me why A decided he had to go pee at 4 am this morning....but I have now cleaned up two "accidents" by 9 am...

Seriously. I am getting more than frustrated here. Bribes aren't working. Threatening isn't working. Beating isn't working...well, that could be because he hasn't actually been beaten.

I'm losing precious sleep because he decides that he IS potty trained in the middle of this night but during the day he doesn't care. ARGH!

The only thing I know about potty training is rubbing their nose in it and saying "No...bad dog" So I think I'm not help! :)

Oh, I've been there done that! I'm up in the middle of the night now, but for different reasons, as you know! I think our wonderful kids like to test our patience sometimes...it's just the way they're made! LOL

Hope it gets better. Maybe you and I will finally get a little more sleep this week! WE can always dream!

I wish I had some good advice...

Ummmm.... have a drink?

And, my mantra, "Love him through it."

My only advice is to start drinking. (You not him!)

Sometimes negative attention is better than no attention. Is something else going on that upsets him?

Maybe you should teach him how to clean up after himself. That sounds daunting... but maybe he'll figure out that being potty trained is a whole lot easier than not... Good luck!!
