you for answering my question. I know kids can get scared on the potty
if they have a hard poop but I don't think that's it because we went
through that already. Do you think the reason for hiding and going
everywhere else is attention because we still have to change his brother's
diapers or could there be somthing else going on. Linda
Answer: Dear Linda,
Jealousy and need for attention
can be a cause for potty training problems as well. When potty training
problems are persistent, the following tips may be helpful:
- Offering a reward for using
the toilet, including lots of praise and attention.
- Have the child be involved in changing himself
- Avoid physical punishment and harsh words.
