POTTY TRAINING! (a lil long)
Alright, it's getting to be about that time that my son needs to start with the ever fun Potty Training. He's 3 will be 4 in Jan. I have joint custody of my son with my ex, so he spends 1/2 time with him and 1/2 the time with me. As it is right now, my son is registered to go to pre-school, however they wont take him if he isn't 100% completely accident free potty trained.
I feel that he isn't ready, he doesn't acknowledge that he has to use the bath room, and for-GET about going poop in the potty. Those simple facts make me push the potty training issue a lot less, the last thing I want to do is traumatize my child even more. My ex says that my son goes in the potty very well with him, however, he doesn't go on his own, they have to constantly remind him, or ask him if he needs to go. When my son needs to go poop, he'll hide, he'll go somewhere there isn't anyone else, and do his business, and then come out and tell us.
I think that at this point, my son wont be attending preschool this year because he's not going to be potty trained. This year is more like a play group anyway, however NEXT year would be beneficial for him to go. So yea, that's where I'm at.
Obviously this is a hot button topic with my ex and I, and of course he's the one that has to have everything his way or no way at all. Soon we'll be dealing with custody issues all over again.. .. grrrrrr. Dealing with such a jerk like my ex is what drove me (drives me still) into becoming a paralegal.
Anyway.. any advice? OOOoh and any advice to get my husband to stop pee'ing on the floor too that would be great.. lol.
