"Live" Elements: Part 2

So I am in the process of potty-training my 2 year old. She does really great and has very fer accidents except... Every time I put her in time-out she decides to let it all flow! Tears and all. Talk about waterworks! Has anyone else had this problem? I don't know if she does it on purpose or if she just can't hold it? It wouldn't be so bad, but she wont wear pull-ups, or ANYTHING for that matter. She has to take off all of her clothes to go potty every 30 minutes, so needless to say time-outs are a big mess. Thank goodness for hardwood floors! lol

I want to show you all the patterned paper pack we have in the shop. You can get this whole pack for only 2.99! Click the photo to take you there.

my child would never stay in the time out spot and it was just a big game, so my friend suggested that i put a favorite toy of hers in time out instead. that worked for us! so maybe it will help you too, for time outs? thanks for the pretty freebies!

With regards to the time-outs and the resulting potty accident, maybe you want to put down a cloth diaper on the chair where she's going to be sitting for the time-out and that could absorb the urine. It's probably going to happen for awhile longer until she is able to have more control - that just takes time.

I don't think she's able to control it, and probably she just gets more upset when it happens while she's already being disciplined. Do be sure you let her know it's no big deal so that it doesn't end up later becoming a control issue.

Also, it may be helpful to put yourself in time-out if you're not being calm on occasion and she can see you as a role model of using time-out to regain composure instead of being a punishment. She may learn to walk away from problems then in the future instead of contributing to a conflict in a physical or verbal way. Anyways, works for us so just thought I'd give you that food for thought while I'm commenting.
