DS (3.3) is delightful but distractible when it comes to the boring stuff. He's been toilet trained for some time and will happily take himself to the loo, take trousers down and do the business. Trouble is that he then appears minus pants and trousers and has to be frogmarched back to loo and stood over while hands are washed and trousers reapplied.
This I can cope with at home, but he starts nursery school in 3 weeks. Toilets are adjacent to nursery space and the kids take themselves unless they ask for help. I doubt DS will do this as he's shy of strange adults.
I'd like to have a push in next few weeks to avoid him appearing trouserless in the middle of his nursery class on the first day! Can anyone offer tips on how to achieve this? I wondered if a star chart and/or bribery would be in order though I'm not a general fan.
Or should I just chill re the no-trousers scenario? They are a pretty relaxed sort of nursery and I have no doubt they would cope with it.
DS2 did this at nursery on a regular basis. He also just used to strip off completely and streak for no apparent reason.
They just dressed him again and got on with it. I think they were secretly quite disappointed when he grew out of it; he was good at picking just the right moment to streak. I think he was nearly 4 when he stopped doing it at nursery.
He's 8 now and still usually appears stark naked after he's been to the loo at home, but manages to get dressed at school.
am very glad to hear i'm not the only one with a little loo streaker! was worrying ds will get in trouble at playgroup for not putting trousers back on again etc. but i'm sure they are used to this kind of thing!
