I have a little angel who we call Mr. Silly, he turned 3 last September – he keeps us on our toes and in stitches. We just successfully completed toilet training, you may applaude now! So… since we’ve been focusing so hard on this area of his life…everything revolves around the toilet or the body parts that make things that go into the toilet.
Last night, one of our students (we have 2 from China) wasn’t feeling well. He had a cloth across his head. Mr. Silly asked him if he needed a bandaid. He then turns around and bends over and says, “It’s in my butt.” How do you say, “That’s not appropriate behaviour” without laughing? My older sis would say – with her infinite wisdom of many years of child pyschology – this is his “anal” phase.
What is the next phase and when will it be here?!!
