I have an inhome daycare and am battling this same issue with one of my little guys. I have five children of my own and know very well about potty training issues. My oldest children are in college. I understand that we aren't supposed to be negative about accidents. Accidents is the key word here. Your son and my little guy aren't having accidents. I ...

You are doing all that you can, and it sounds like you have a pretty good handle on things. It sounds like you understand that it's impossible to completely prevent or 'fix' her behavior, and that's good. She is going through a tough time, just like you and your wife are, and there will invariably be some outbursts. I would advise redirecting her when she ...

Here's my attempt: You messed up your relationship (I'm not criticizing it, BTW, I'm just stating a fact) and that obviously troubles your daughter. If you feel like you cannot fix your relationship, all you can do is to try to minimize the negative effects this has on your daughter. If I was in your place, I'd start out by asking myself why she behaves ...

It may not be the answer you want and it will probably get down voted but the best thing you can do is to move back in together and try a lot harder to make your marriage work.

He apparently knew how to go potty from the beginning and if he is looking at you and intentionally peeing in his pants when he knows he is not to then its time for more then just a time out. I know your not supposed to be negative about every accident but this is kind of different . Maybe you should try swatting him a few times. It doesn't even have to be ...
