4 year old peeing in the house
Hm. Well, first let me say that it is actually very common for kids to have trouble staying dry during the night at 4. In fact, 12% of kids are not able to stay dry at night until age 9!! Something to do with deep sleeping and not getting a strong enough signal to wake and go. That is why they make those under jams in such large sizes (up to 90 pounds!!). I'd put them in pull ups at night for a bit longer just to save yourself the aggravation. also, if you or their other parent were bed wetters, it is hereditary sometimes.
Anyway, the peeing on the carpet---- did you ask him why? Was he trying to make it to the bathroom but couldn't?? Or was this deliberate. My son did this one time when we were on vacation at about that age. he was all keyed up and thinking he was hysterically funny dancing around naked and then just peed! Yeesh. The fun quickly ended and I say "no way are we doing that." My younger son was shown how to 'go' outside and for a while would just go outside no matter where we were or what we were doing. I had to break him of that like I would anything else he did that I didn't like.
so, how do you handle it? Read More At : ...
