My DD is toilet trained and was going to preschool for a year. However I'd never explained to her abt the toilet seat being up/down concept. I always assumed it would be down as most kids her age ( she started with early preschool at age 3 year 4 mnths )use the potty sitting down boys included and the teachers are there to help. But I sometimes have seen the seat being up in her bathroom in her preschool and now in her KG classroom. Do you think its too late to explain to her abt this...I dont know whether she knows abt putting the seat down if necessary. I have posted this in 4- 5 yr community but asking this here since you all are starting to potty train ur kids and wanted to know whether I made a mistake by not telling her abt this when she started using the big toilet.View Thread
Something else I wanted to talk...Maybe u can help me here too. My DD brushes or tries to brush her teeth on her own these days and she doesnt want me to be around watching her while doing this. So I have let her a couple of times.
One day I noticed that the toothbrush holder was on the edge of the countertop. Just below is our toilet brush. We always put the toilet lid down so that she doesnt accidentally drop anything in it. So I am not worried abt that. What I am worrying now is that what if she has dropped her toothbrush ( while taking out or puuting back her brush in the holder )and it has fallen on the toilet brush below or the floor and she then put it back without my knowledge? Now I have shifted the holder to the other end of the countertop...just to be safe.View Thread
