You may not need to bust out your desert staff or duck into a burning bush to learn the ten commandments of potty training, but rest assured that you will be properly baptized into the process. And as you make your way through the sea of training pants, potty chairs, and the long car rides when all you can do is cross your fingers and pray that the potty training gods will smile upon you, you might just want to consider these rules as your Bible for right now. The thought of bribing your children makes you uncomfortable?
Oliver was porrty-trained last July fairly early at 26 months. He did really well, went a bit downhill, and then we just diddled along with wee accidents here and there usually weekly. He never, ever had a poo accident, he has always used the potty really well and goes staright to the potty when he needs a poo.

Such behaviors as defecating in a corner of the bedroom, having daily accidents at school after many months of complete dryness, or pleading to return to diapers are disturbing and even frightening to many parents—more so when they do not understand the cause. Regression can occur for similar reasons long after toilet training has been accomplished. A new baby in the family, a move to a new house, family conflict, or any other emotionally stressful situation may cause your child to revert to an earlier level of bathroom mastery—possibly involving bedwetting, puddling, withholding of stool, and even defecating in inappropriate places.
As a parent, it is such a proud moment when your toddler starts potty training and has success. With many children, it starts off well, but there is a potty training regression. Whether your child is a toddler, a three-year-old or four-year-old, there are practical strategies here to help through the most frustrating potty training issues.

This morning it was potty time and he just stood in the bathroom and went in his pants instead and said he wanted to wear different pants.

My four-year old-daughter has recently started wetting the carpet — she does it deliberately. I initially thought that it may be one of our two young dogs, but I have recently caught her doing it. She has no problems using the toilet, she has constant access to a toilet or a potty, when I caught her doing this she was a very short distance away from the potty and it was well in sight.
