Re: PLEASE help... getting so angry!

I guess I'm going to be the voice of dissent here. There is actually medical research that shows it can be bad for urinary tract and bowel health to potty train late. It sounds like your child needs to be reminded to use the potty. Take him to the potty during times when adults logically go to the bathroom: upon waking up, after meals, before bath and bed, before getting in the car, after arriving home. As parents, it's our responsibility to teach our children good health and hygiene habits. It should be pretty obvious that going around with our urine and feces wrapped around our bodies when we can help it is not a good habit to have. It's not unreasonable to remind your child he needs to eat or that bedtime is approaching. In the same manner, it's not unreasonable to remind a two or three year old that he needs to empty his bladder and bowels rather than crapping and peeing himself.
