can there be regression after potty training???
to (verb) potty in the (noun) potty is something we achieved as early as april this year. smug in how easily it was achieved, the mother gloated.
and the gloating has just been flushed down the drain!
she will not sit on the potty. not on her little seat with ugly red and blue rabbits( could that be the reason? but she loved them until some weeks back). not on mummy's black potty seat- not on papa's white rim ( why do men leave the covers off!!!! ok thats not the point of this post....leave it...). not on the indian squatting potty. we abandoned the potty in layers- first the baby seat, then mummy's, then papa's and now even the indian one.
and she wont do it outside/diaper/panty -so potty time is crazy time. run from loo to loo/potty to potty -cajole/urge to sit on rabbits/on black/on white....no...no...no...until its done outside/panty/wherever leading to despair all around, particularly her despair-lets not talk about the one more round of cleaning for me...
so whats going on???
i have never shouted or scolded her in the fear that the angst will lead to an anal retentive child ( i am a psychology major- great jargon makes a deep imprint in one's brain) - and if you have met the child's mother you will know the meaning of anal retentive!
so then whats going on???
i thought just one more step and the(noun) susu will be done in the (noun) potty -but thats not to be as yet....
i really need advice - i dont even know what term to google search for tips- regression potty training?
