Derek is driving me crazy! He is very bright and very resourceful, yet he still has daily potty accidents!! It is usually poop, but sometimes pee. He will jsut go in his patns and get really quiet and still, but continue to do what he is doing.

We tried making the rule of no extras the day after a potty accident. That actually worked well, but it got really confusing and hard to enforce.

I have him go in and take off his own pants and clean it up, but he is mr procrastinator. He has been in the bathroom for at least half an hour, cleaning up. And if I go in there to supervise, I guarantee I will get angry bc he will not do what he is supposed to, he finds whatever else he can. I have a feeling that he procrastinates adn screws around bc he is so disappointed and frustrated.
