My 3year old son knows how to use the toilet already. He can use our toilet seat but i still put his toilet seat so its way comfortable for him. Everytime he needs to have BM, he will runaway from me and refused to sit on the toilet seat. I can see on his face that he is afraid that his poop coming out of his buttoms. The feeling that something gonna come out makes him refuse to sir in the pott... More
He started preschool right after his third birthday(6wks ago). The first day he went right in and didn't even say bye to me. Then he started fighting me, not to go. I didn't think anything about it because he hates leaving the house to go anywhere and he always came home happy. He kept show a little more and more that he didn't want to go to school. This last week he started sobbing... More
My soon to be 4yr old is super friendly and although I really like that she’s social I need to figure out how to curb it somewhat. The problem is that she is way too friendly and informative with complete strangers, adults in particular. She waves and says hello to anyone and instantly starts up conversation. This scares the crap out of me for obvious reasons. Any helpful tips on how to go abou... More
My daughter is almost three and we are looking into pre-school options. She is in a learning style environment in a home daycare now, and we are thinking of loving her to a Montessori pre-school next year. Parents with toddlers in pre-school: how did you decide on a school? If you chose Montessori, are you happy with your decision? Thanks in advance!
We started training back in May and had a few successful toilet uses. When our daycare situation changed we stopped (he was 2 at the time). any and all tips are much appreciated.
My little boy will be 3 in May and he absolutely refuses to use a potty chair/toilet. He is not my biological son, I did not know his full background but I do know he's kinda had it rough. I have three girls of my own ages 6, 5 and 22 months, so I've been through the potty training and the difficulties but with girls. He wants to sit on the potty and he wants to wear his big boy underw... More
I need some ideas to help keep my 3 year old daughter’s hair in place and out of her face while she is at preschool. Ideally I’d love to French braid, but I’m terrible at it! Need to practice, not sure why it’s so difficult for me haha! So other than that, anyone have any ideas to keep hair in place? My daughter has long waivey thick hair and ponytails, pigtails, and standard braids fall apart ... More
Hey! Our 18 month old was showing the tell-tale signs (dry diapers in a row, fighting changes, exerting her independence, showing deep interest in the toilet and us going potty including pretending to wipe herself)...we started oh crap! method on Wednesday. She definitely recognizes when she is peeing (she’ll say “uhoh!” If she’s not on her potty and holds it if you tell her mid-stream when t... More
My family is military, and we have moved twice in the past year alone. It’s me and my two little kids and we are staying at my in-laws’ place for a little while. My in-laws are really great, and even help me with nighttime stuff with the kiddos, which I love. The problem is with my 3 year old. She’s a sensitive kid, but also VERY smart and manipulative. For the longest time when it was me and ... More
And feel like it just wasnt the right fit? I found the book to be informative and useful on many levels but knowing my kid I just dont think that method will be the best for her. Just wondering what others thought of the book and experiences with it. TIA!
We are wondering if our son is ready for potty training or not. He just turned 2, 2 months ago. His diaper is staying dry for a pretty long time and often does not need to be changed after a nap. But he does not talk much (he is getting a speech therapist soon) so I’m worried he won’t tell us when he needs to go. He also has never given any cues he is going to the bathroom and never let us know... More
My LO seems to be on the road to potty training. She tells me when she has poops and can seem to hold her pee (she almost never pees during nap). I was just looking to hear your stories regarding trying to potty train at this age. To me it seems a little young, but I am 3 months pregnant so the thought of only changing 1 set of diapers is appealing.
I am going to start trying to potty training my 21 month old over the holiday break. I always thought I would wait until 2 1/2 or 3 but he is showing a lot of the signs of readiness (occasionally asking to go on the potty, telling me before he goes, asking for his diaper to be changed, etc). What strategies worked best for you? I’m currently reading “oh crap” but would like some insight as well.
We started potty training (24 month old) last weekend and it was going pretty well! He’d pee in the potty if we asked and even went a few times on his own. Today (day 7) he woke up and COMPLETELY refused to even sit on the potty. Held his pee for 4 hours before it all came pouring out. And did the same another 4 hours later..... we did the “oh crap” method and I am so disappointed with how toda... More
I'm having a hard time getting started on potty training with my 2 yo son. I've tried having him use the potty on a schedule but he always wait till after he puts his pull up back on to finally go. Or he'll sit for a few seconds then take off and pee on the floor. Not sure what I should do. Any tips for potty training?
So we are starting potty training our 2 year old tomorrow. Just works out we have some time off work and figure now is a good time! However, my son has his 2 year old check up on on Wednesday morning..... we (plan) to do the oh crap method of naked life the first few days. It will be day 4 and I am going back and forth between just trusting the process or putting on a diaper for a few hours 😭
My 4 year old started waking up in the middle of the night going on 3 weeks ago. He runs to our bed and insists on sleeping with us. Sounds cute, but it’s not. He kicks, flings his arms, lays on top of us. My husband and I haven’t had a good sleep since. I thought I tackled the sleep when he was a baby, I don’t know what this regression is. How do I stop it? I’ve tried to bribe, Ive even tried ... More
