My son is 3 1/2 and is potty trained. The issue I am having is that he refuses to wipe his tush after a bowel movement. He knows how, because when I am standing there and tell him to do it, he does. He wont do it at daycare, and when at home if his Dad is there, he will tell him he doesnt know how. I have discussed this with my husband, and assured him that he DOES know how, he just wont! I dont get it...he would rather walk around with a dirty tush.
I told him that I would have the ladies at the daycare stand in the bathroom with him to make sure he wipes and he got upset because he says that only the babies need the teachers in the bathroom and that he is not a baby... I have told him that the other kids wont want to play with him if he smells like poop, but that doesnt seem to effect him.
I am at my wits end..I dont know how to make him understand how important it is. Is it a control thing?
