On 2 things, please...
1. Potty training Oliver.
He will go pee-pee in the potty when he wants to. If he wants a prize or if I remind him, he will at least try... sometimes. He will not go poop in the potty. Ever. Not even a little. He isn't hiding when he poops. I can't even really figure out when he is pooping to take him to the potty. Advice?
2. He lies about pooping in his pants.
I will ask him if he has pooped. He says no or blames it on Liam. I remind him that if he lies to me that he will get a spankin. He still holds to the "no poop" story. He will also lie if I ask him if he got out of his bed (when he has a toy, so obviously he has gotten up...)and then he gets in trouble for telling lies. I am thinking he is saying "no" because he knows that we want him to poop in the potty. I have tried to explain to him that he won't get in trouble for pooping in his pants. He gets in trouble for telling lies about pooping in his pants. Am I even making any sense?! UG.
Has anyone got any advice? Been there? Made it out alive and with all your hair in place?
He will be 3 in March and I do think he understands the process of going potty. If I ask him where he is supposed to poop he will tell me in the big boy potty. I am talking in circles... help?
