I don’t really think of it as training as it is forcing my son to change his potty habits in a nice way. A push.
So, I do believe this is attempt #3 at this. This will be the final attempt. He will get it or he will wear diapers on his first date…..whatever he decides.
Aidan has actually done really well with it this go ’round. We are using the sticker chart and treats for everytime he goes successfully in his potty. He gets one sticker for peeing and two for pooping. At the end of the first week – as long as he has stickers for everyday – he gets to go to Chuck E Cheese!
So far, though, he has not pooped in the potty. The first time around he only went once in it and held it every other time. Well, Aidan isn’t holding it this time; he’s going in his underwear. Yesterday we went to Home Depot and he forgot to tell me he had to go pee, so he wound up peeing all in their floor and on himself. I spent about 15 minutes cleaning it up. My nerves were shot bc it was humiliating and I felt bad for Aidan bc he was covered. Once we got to the car, we had clean underwear and wipes. Then I took a chill pill.
Next week we are going to continue rewards, but will mostly focus on pooping. If he poops in the potty everyday, then we will go to this place kind of like Chuck E Cheese in town that has one of those large bouncy houses in it.
I will have an update next week.
