a slice of life with Miche
I was very frustrated as well with potty training. When I was researching potty training a common theme seemed to be praise and positive reinforcement. I came across a website called www.pottytrainingrewards.com. We hung it in the kitchen and named the little boy on the front of the package, Bobby. My son could not wait to go to the potty so he could push the button, hear the praising message, and get his chocolate reward from, Bobby. It really got my son excited about using the potty himself and it was fun for him. Because he became so involved, potty training was easy. So give it a try. Best of luck!
Ah, you spoke too soon! Apparently, Karen S. feels the same pain that you do in reference to potty training. So much so that she has the same response playing in an endless loop inside her head. Sorry. :) And sorry that training isn't going well. And a heartfelt "oy!" on endless questioning "Why?" of kid-dom. I wanted to wear earmuffs for about six months straight when Offspring was going through that stage. I swear that she even mumbled "why?" in her sleep. I'd miss you if you gave up your blog, but at least you're only talking about moving, not packing it in entirely. I'd have to protest at that! :)
KLee: Yup. I have a habit of speaking too soon! Although my initial reaction is a desire to bait the troll (like putting those keywords into everyone of my posts, publishing her ISP and her city and state and her bosses e-mail addresses) I know that the smart thing to do is to not feed them. I think I'll just be deleting her comments from now on. If I'm feeling up to it I'll put a counter on the side bar to see how many I've deleted.Give up blogging? Although sometimes I wish I could, I don't think I can. Yer stuck with me girl!
