Hi i have read lots of problems with children not wanting to go on the toilet but we have the opposite problem.we started trainjng our 2 and a half year old today and he constantly wants to keep going to the toilet only most of the time he doesnt actually go.we dont want to discourage this eagerness in anyway or tell him he doesnt need to go just in case it is the one time he does.we just need some advice on how to praise him for going but ensure he only uses the toilet when he needs to.he strains when he goes just to get a little wee out and sometimes a bit off poo but we dont want him to hurt himself.we thought the novellty would have worn off by now but it hasnt and he is now getting upset when we go with him.any advice would be good thank you.
