That was incredibly rude of your mother-in-law. She should be supporting and helping you in your potty training adventures! Kids need constant reenforcement in order to understand. Best of luck OP.

This might help, kids at that age don't want to have dirty papers/underwear. Especially if she knows what the potty is.

The reason is because this site has been around for years, those that have been around for quite some time have seen the "oh, that's shitty" or something similar pun alot and becomes unfunny. So it's an unspoken rule to not use them or you'll get down voted. Hope this helps.

It got downvoted because on every single poo-related FML, without exception, somebody makes that joke and it would appear people are getting sick of it

??? But the kid wanted to use the toilet. The grandmother refused to take her. I don't understand what you're trying to argue.

With his experience, perhaps #2 is trying to suggest that there is still hope for the future. While the child was clearly mistreated by the terrible mother in law, OP should still hang in there. The kid doesn't want to wear a soiled underwear (reason more why the MILs conduct was horrid), but moving forward, definitely keep up your efforts, encouragement, and positive reinforcement. You will reach your goal! Speak to your MIL about her conduct, and keep her at a distance during this sensitive pe

From the sound of the post the kid doesn't mind that bit yet and is having trouble with the concept. In that situation an adult not listening will have an adverse affect.

ya my grandma did the same thing with my little brother when we were younger... she would talk him into putting in diapers bc "he's still the baby" and would unpotty train him every chance she got.

#52- While I know nothing about raising children myself, that situation with your grandmother and OP's MIL would be enough for me to not let them around my kids alone for a long while (at least until the kid is old enough to go potty alone). How incredibly rude of them to go against the parenting style placed and extremely disrespectful to the poor child's basic needs. I can't stand people like that.

This is been so pathetically over used I don't know how you can say it without hanging your head in shame. NOW HANG YOUR HEAD IN SHAME!!!

Ugh mother in laws, amIrite?! That was rude of her but just keep giving your child a lot of positive reinforcement for letting you know that she had to go. Good news is they pretty much crap every single day so they will have plenty of chances to try again. Good luck, op.

Oh I would explode. I'm still having trouble potty training my son, who turns 4 next month, because he only gets to work on it 4 1/2 days a week, at my house. His dad doesn't work with him on it. I know the struggle.

Right. Because fear is great motivator. You'll only mess with her head. She'll end up having a breakdown when she has an innocent accident.

It's never a good idea to scare kids into using the potty, and using "a monster will eat you if" for anything is a terrible tactic. I'm guessing you don't have kids.
