So is the idea to go cold turkey on the diapers during the day and have her run around bare-assed?

Potty training is more parent training than child training. Also, each child is different.

With us, our first was almost potty trained at a year, but then we all got the flu and it all went out the window. When he was two, we took a weekend and let him run without a diaper, and when he needed to go, we sat him on the potty. He had a good idea of what it felt like when he needed to go, and without the comfort of the diaper, he was worried about going on the floor. He was also aware of what he was doing when he went. We had 2 maybe 3 messes to clean up and we were good to go.

Our second was more difficult. He was more than happy to fill a diaper. We tried pull ups and training underwear, but he had no problem being wet. It took about 2 weeks to finally get him fully trained. We had to put him on the can every hour for him to go. Finally, he figured out that if he went in the toilet, he didn't have to go sit every hour. We also made him "clean up" a couple of spots as well. With him, we realized that we had to be a bigger pain in his ass, than him taking the time to go to the bathroom. To this day (he' 8), we still have problems with him flushing the toilet and washing his hands.

Mine will be 3 in 2 weeks and has a very passing interest. We give him a sticker if he goes, and he is starting to go at daycare, but still no breakthrough. I am worried with a new one coming in less than a month that he will revert back anyway.

If your kid like stickers, a "Potty Chart" where he gets stickers to put on it every time he uses the potty worked wonders for us. We're not 100% there yet, but we're damn close...we still get wet pull-ups overnight and the occasional accident during the day. Hopefully he doesn't regress with his new sister in the house...

Tonight is a happier & more relaxed atmosphere after my kid's tennis match than we've experience before.

After an 0-3 career start, the monkey is off his back after a solid 8-5 win in JV doubles action this afternoon. What you probably need to know before I say anything else is that he started playing less than 5 months ago. His initial goal was to simply minimize the suckage enough not to get cut. With that mission accomplished (narrowly I suspect), the losing was getting in his head at least a little bit I think.

So .... it was awfully nice for him to get not only a nice backhand passing shot down the line to wrap up their 7th win, but then to get the winner on match point with basically the same shot.

Yeah, proud daddy. Even more relieved really, that was a weight I didn't want him carrying around for 10-11 months since today was probably their final official match of the season.

Whew.

And, as a follow-up ... I'm even happier Monday night happened for my kid, otherwise tonight's 0-8 loss would probably have been quite demoralizing. Completely overmatched against a powerful sophomore from a Class 5A powerhouse (who looked like a probably #2 or #3 varsity singles player for 90% of the teams in our classification).

On the bright side, no notable injuries suffered during his match, so that's something at least.

I remember when Ashley finally figured it out. As she was walking from point A to point B, she tripped over a toy. But instead of falling over, she actually took a hop-step to regain balance! Was one of my proudest moments, right there.

Wife & child are now back from the DMV ... despite the fact that he drove home.

God help us all, he's officially 15.

What is the deal with middle school kids attending a middle school 'prom'? When did this stuff start happening? I've got former youth football players posting all of these prom pictures, and it just has me thinking, "kid, you can't even drive yet."

Started a few years ago, sometime after full cap-and-gown kindergarten graduations.

It has been great having family from New Jersey around to help with the new addition, but it is time for them to go. Thankfully my parents leave today, the In Laws will be here until Sunday. Not that I don't love them, but I am ready to move on and get into a routine.

My in laws arrived 3 and a half weeks ago, my parents 2 and a half. Babay was born last Monday. They are all staying with us. House is big enough, everyone has their own room and bathroom, but it is impossible to get a routine down that works with all these people there.

Still, my Son is going to be crushed when they leave, he has really enjoyed having them around. My SIL and BIL arrive from London Saturday and stay until Thursday the 23rd. Will be fun to see them, but I will be glad that Memorial Day weekend will be just us.

I remember we had an 8th grade graduation dance. But it wasn't prom... not even close to it.

If you take your not-yet-potty trained toddler, and want to take them swimming.. Do you just use the water pants or put a diaper under them?

Yep.. worked great.. looks just like the lining of a regular diaper. He was very apprehensive and unhappy about the cool water, but after he was in, he's very happy and splashing around.

My son has now realized the new baby isn't going anywhere and he has entered full blown " I want Mommy to do everything for me all the time" phase. Luckily he still goes to daycare, but it is maddening at night, especially if the baby needs to be fed during bedtime.

I don't know which is more amazing to me at the moment:
that kids ever survive HS today, or that parents ever survive HS today.

This might not be a bad idea. So far my nerves have managed to ride with him twice. Both times I've desperately wanted a drink immediately afterwards.

Considering that I frequently scuffle with the whole "will to live" thing anyway, this should tell you something. Right now turns, and the concept of turning in general, seems to be his greatest challenge.

Why must my kid always scrape and bang his face, of all places?

Poor guy. Tripped on a step outside, has this hideous looking scrape on his temple. And then banged his head at the playground a day later, earning himself a nice bruise right on his forehead. Swear. Combine this with his perpetually bruised shins, I'm almost embarrased to take him anywhere - it looks like we abuse him.

I think my wife has lost the will to live ... she let him drive in the middle of downtown ATL today (down 75, thru the Grady Curve, out to I-20 and on to Conyers ... for those who know the area).

My boy has officially graduated to a big boy bed.

More accurately, a crib with 3 rails and a small fence in the front instead of 4 rails.

My 3 year old son just went potty, and as I am cleaning up the bathroom he runs away with no cloths on. No biggie. I then hear quite the commotion from my wife in the dining room. My son decided it would be funny to run to the table, pull a piece of shit from his ass, and put it on the table.

I'm sure we'll laugh about it someday.

It's funny, as much as I wanted a break from the kids, now that they're in California the house is quiet and I don't like it. I miss my daughter's sarcastic sense of humor, and my son's obsession with license plates.

3 1/2 more weeks til we go pick them up. *sigh*

Dropped ours off in Chattanooga, TN for a 5 day tennis camp. No biggie & probably not quite noteworthy enough for this thread perhaps, except for what his regular coach down here did.

Put in a call to the guy running the camp (who he played against when he was at Auburn & clinic guy was at UT), had to be at least a half hour or more conversation (based on all the stuff the camp guy knew). The interest level from the camp director was obvious when my kid arrived, was very tuned in about him, upbeat, personalized, etc. etc.

That call had to be one of the nicest things any non-related adult has ever done for my kid.

Age 15 = terrible twos X 7.5

I'm gonna need a bail bondsman if things don't improve soon.

I wish I had better news to report but, at least in my case, I think this past year has felt more like 3-4 years. By the time he heads to college I figure I'll be at least 80 years old (mentally/emotionally).

So, two thoughts...

There is a book called "How to Talk So your Kids will Listen, and Listen so your Kids will Talk." Or something to that effect. Some of it is over the top and goody goody, but the general message, I think, is very good. We have pulled a few ideas from there which are very effective. Probably the most effective is to give choices when you want them to do something.

For example, we often have trouble getting my son out of the bath tub and getting on with his bedtime routine. We've essentially fixed the problem by offering him a choice of how he wants to get out of the tub. Instead of back and forth of time to get out, I want to stay in, blah blah, it is, OK, tonight do you want to hop out of the tub like a bullfrog or fly out like a seahawk. He almost always takes a second to think about it, makes a decision and acts on it.

Second thing is we have a short list of rules which he's memorized. Rule number one is listen to mommy and daddy. There are a couple of fun ones (take care of the Ipad and one he made up about sharing a certain toy). But if he's not doing something, instead of the back and forth, we'll just say something like, Hey, bud, are you following rule number one? He's remarkably honest about it and will usually try to do better.

Obviously, each kid is different, but those two little tricks have worked really well for us.

dola...

And a fun story. My three year old has some sort of bug bite under his eye. Looks like he's packing a raspberry under his eye. Kind of sad.

Last night I was asking him if he remembered getting bitten or stung by a bug.

He says, "No, I'm not sure it was a bug who bit me."

I say, "Really? What do you think it was?"

He says, "I think maybe it was a dinosaur."

we also give our 3 year old choices and it works really well. We are about to start on chores and rules. We'll see how that works out.

This has worked very well for me with my three year old. For example, as part of the bedtime routine, I ask him would he rather go to the bathroom or brush his teeth first. He quickly makes his decision, does whichever task he picked first, and will then do the second.

Those techniques definitely help ... some. There's a bit of a honeymoon phase when they're younger where all these parenting techniques on behavior and eating, etc., work really well. Every time I talk to someone with only young kids they tell me how great their kids eat and behave because they do blah, blah and blah and I just smile and say, "Yep, I remember those days."

That said, even if it doesn't keep working really, it is the right technique to offer choices and open lines of communication. That's the parenting style which is shown to work best in the long run.

We had some similar issues with my son and tried a bunch of different things. Basically we just praised him a lot on the nights he stayed in his room, and eventually he stopped coming in. Nothing else worked. Once they are out of the crib there is little that can be done.

Yeah, I think it just takes patience. It may seem like it's going to take forever to get them readjusted, but soon you'll forget it even happened. I think most parenting challenges like this require continue pushing the issue the direction you want it, gently. If it doesn't work, wait a bit and try it again.
