I get so frustrated with potty training in general, and I find it extremely hard to find help online or in books on my exact problem. I know that other parents have been where I am, but no one really talks about the fact that their kid was still having accidents a year and a half after they were "potty trained." I usually hear the phrase "oh, my kid was potty trained at ...months!"
Is it really true? I doubt it. What is the definition of potty trained? Is my definition different from theirs?
Most days I think that K is potty trained, until an hour later when he confesses that he pooped in his underwear. He's gone for days without accidents at all, and suddenly he's having several a day. We had him basically potty trained last October, and we're still dealing with accidents. Is this normal? How long should I plan on stuff like this?
I've read all the suggestions (candy, stickers, reward charts)...I just want to know if others have dealt with this issue, and how they dealt with it.
Basically, I need a support group :). If you have had any issues with potty training, please comment...help me feel better...please.
