One of the things that I deal with as a special needs parent is the whole 1 step forward 2 steps back thing. The Lost and Tired family is no stranger to this.
Emmett is potty trained, thank God, and has been for awhile. However, in recent months his potty routine has changed.
He used to have to take all of his clothes off before going potty. He would then flush, wash his hands and get dressed or ask for help to get dressed. However, now he will keep his clothes on, but won’t flush or wash his hands.
It seems like every time I walked into the bathroom, I find a present, left behind by Emmett.
I’m grateful that we have come this far and I’m extremely proud of Emmett as well. But, if I to be honest, I have to admit that these steps back really suck.
I have tried visual reminders and nothing. If I verbally remind him then he freaks out. One more thing to figure out. Don’t get me wrong, I’m don’t mean to complain because I know it could be worse. But even knowing that, it’s still frustrating….
