Potty Training Day 4

Today is day 4.  I need alcohol.  A lot of it.

I know he knows where to go.  And I know he knows when he has to go.  Yet my floor is becoming wetter and wetter.  Right now I would kill for hardwood floors so clean up would be easy and the smell wouldn't linger.

A few have said maybe he's not ready.  But I remain convinced that if he can read, he can potty.

It's a battle of wills.  I only made it 2 days last time.  I'm not backing down this time.  I'm not.  The force in this one is strong though, and I want to cave, give back in to diapers, just deal with it.  I won't.  We can do this.  I know we can.


  1. I really wouldn't push it or it will backfire and take even longer. My paed recently said it has to be important to them or they won't do it. We have been introducing potty training since 18 months with Dominik. He trained for pooping around 2.5, peeing didn't happen until the past week or so. When I tried to force it he would literally vengeance pee on the floor, door, couch etc. I backed off and he did it easily in his own terms in a few days with only one accident after a nap.

  2. I agree with Di, whatever the reason is that he is not doing what he is supposed to do (stubbornness it seems) you should not push it. I know it is frustrating, but unless he engages in the process is a lost battle.


Whip me, beat me, take away my charge card. Or just leave a comment. Whichever works best for you :)
