4 YO and Accidents
Looking for any tips, tricks or advice... my very potty trained 4 year old has been having quite a few accidents lately. He gets too excited or focused on things and either forgets, or outright refuses to acknowledge that he has to go and then by the time it’s dire, there’s no time and he doesn’t make it to the bathroom. We’ll pick up on his mannerisms and recognize that he has to go and try to get him to do so, but we’re met with resistance almost every time. I’m trying to figure out how we balance being sensitive to a still growing and learning child, with making sure that he understands that it’s his responsibility to tell us when he has to go with adequate time to actually get there. This is not a once or twice thing. This has been happening for about 3-4 weeks now maybe every other day. We talk to him about it, and he indicates that he understands, but the behavior doesn’t change. Anyone go through something similar?
