DS turned 3 in September and is potty trained. He hasn't had an accident in weeks, until a few days ago when I realized he was peeing on purpose after declaring he was "mad."
I cannot even believe I am posting this...
My son pees when he's mad at me. Today, he begged for a bath after lunch, but he had one last night so I continued to tell him no, eventually ignoring him. He went to a corner in the kitchen and peed. I ended up giving him a bath because he got it all over his legs... I hate that he got his way.
Later, he was really mean to our cat... pulling her fur and trying to squeeze and carry her. I sat him in timeout (3 minutes, because he's 3) and within 60 seconds he peed on the chair.
I know this is all intentional because this is the 3rd day in a row he has pee in timeout. Not to mention I took him to the restroom 20 minutes prior to this timeout. I don't over use timeout either, it was his first timeout today.
Any advice? What am I doing wrong? He's acting like a cat that's mad at me! LOL
