Are you sure there is nothing physically wrong? Is he afraid of the bathroom? If you are sure he is purposly doing it, that is very frustrating. I was really surprised to read that Dr. Sears advises punishing children over 6 years old for purposly pooping in their pants. First you teach them to clean up the poopy pants. I am quoting from The Discipline Book. If they continue to poop "Calmly say (not at all in a punitive tone) 'The next time you dirty your pants...

I asked if any former day care workers think day care is good for kids. You are welcome to lurk there. I suggest you...
I think we all are aware of what mamawaanabe thinks is acceptable on this forum. Now how do we all come to an agreement on what is acceptable? Let's deal with this now and get it over with. Do we vote on it? Like SAHMing is the best for kids vote 1 if you think that is okay to say vote 2 if you think that is not allowed Do we ask the moderator what is okay? Do we have seperate threads for those who think it's best and those that don't. Like how the...

Okay I am sorry I called you the poltically-correct police.
"SAHMing is best for kids. I think everyone should be a SAHM until their kids are 5 years old." That is not demeaning. That is not allowed here. This is demeaning, "This is so sad. Mrs. X put her child in day care and because she did that, I know she is a really bad mother. I don't think she loves her kids like I do." If I am interpreting it wrong please explain because I really want to be clear on this.

If we are to avoid the Mommy wars at all costs - by even saying that we can't hint that SAHMing is best - fine. I can...
I don't want the restriction we have in SAHMing on WOHMs either. If they think WOHMing is the best - good for them.

I just read today that if the mother is the one to be at the child's beck and call most of the time, it stands to reason that it is her care the child...
