Are you familiar with the pee dance?
This primitive dance is first exhibited in those weeks months after the diapers come off.
So I try that gentle suggestion method. It rarely works.
This is where I say something like "Okay, listen to your body and let me know…"
I know my kid. He is independent. Stubborn. If I were to drag him to the bathroom right here it would set him back months. Years. He would likely never pee in a toilet again.
So I wait while he listens to his body.
And then I go grab some dry clothes.
Two years later and he still does the pee dance. No more accidents though. He can run faster now. That helps.
