I need help potty training my almost 4 year old


I think we all remember the above picture when I caught Ethan peeing in my front yard, and I was absolutely mortified. Well, since then he has gotten a little more brave.

2 Sunday's ago, we went over to my mom's for breakfast since we have 1:00 church now, and when we were about to leave- Ethan decided to pee in my mom's front yard! Sometimes- I just want to get in his head to know what he is thinking! So, I immediately run out there- THANK GOODNESS - no one is around- and I tell him to put his shorts back on, and get in the car! You DO NOT pee in people's front yards, or back for that matter! I thought he would remember NOT to do it again- that it was rude to do that.

This afternoon I sent Erin and Ethan out to play, and I'll check on them every 15 min. or so- if I don't see them just outside in our front yard riding their bikes. Well, I looked out the window and I can't see them in either direction- so I went outside to see if they started to go around the block (which is a no-no without mom)

I saw them 3 houses down, and what was Ethan doing?? PEEING in my neighbors yard, 3 doors down! Forget ding dong ditching! Oh, no! It's all about whose yard do I get to pee in this time!! Seriously-- does ANYONE have any suggestions??

It is driving me absolutely bonkers! I mean- does Chet do this in his spare time and I just don't know about it? Where is he learning this! LOL! Is this what people do on tv now?? Just crazy!

Other then that- it is beautiful here:)

I wish I could help you out but luckily I haven't had that problem with any of my boys. Knock on wood. So good luck with that!

I'm glad I still have a few years before I have to worry about potty training, LOL!

By the way, I tagged you for a meme.

Boys, boys, boys. Why do their lives revolve around that particular body part?

Would some Cheerios in the toilet amuse him enough to come in and pee? You know, kind of a target practice.

okay so one of our friends told us... that when they have an accident, they say very sweet to there children, i am so sorry that you had an accident "name" but now we are going to have to wash you off. Then they put them in a cold shower, they say it works everytime!! Good luck.
