Too Soon? (Part 2)
So I ended the last post saying that I basically threatened my child – sit on the potty or no new toys. But miraculously it worked after about 15-20 minutes of coaxing. He did finally sit on the potty and what did the little stinker do?? He peed a total of three times and even managed to poop a little. If you would have walked into our house around then you would have seen two very happy parents.
I thought that that would be the hardest part but now since then he refuses to sit on the potty. He's done it since about a handful of times but every.single.time has been a battle. And I do not want to have to battle with him every flippin' time I want him to sit on the toilet. So I am asking you – what should I do? Do I give up for awhile and try again in a couple of weeks or do I continue to threaten tell my child that his toys will continue to be taken away unless he does what I ask?
*Reminder – since this was written about 1 ½ months ago things have STILL not improved. Last night if you had walked by our home you would have thought WWIII was going on. There was so much yelling, screaming, crying and begging going on by everyone. (OK – I don't think Mike cried)
