Do you children flush the toilet without being told to do it?

Because mine don't and it drives me bloody mad.

Our bathroom smells like a dirty stinking public loo.


Any solutions??????

DD doesn't either, although TBh you do need to give the button thing a pretty hard press and itis higher than she is.

she does usually. because i ask again and again if she has. if she hasn't, she gets sent upstairs to go do it. i think it's sinking in now.

thankfully they do if they have a poo, but not for a wee, for some reason they think there is nothing to flush. My main problem at the moments is trying to tell ds to lift the lid before he goes, I am forever wiping the seat dry before I can go aaaaahhh !

That is not good fishfinger. We've had ours since moving here (nearly 2 years ago) and it has never gone wrong yet.

My loevly boys do it all the time, poos and wees!

If I haven't realised they've been it can be quite an awful discovery.

Fishy, do your boys have a good aim?

Ds1 doesn't even look at the toilet when he's going so you can imagine what happens there and ds2 lifts the seat about 2 inches and just pokes his willy between the seat and the loo1

Honestly, unless I say it every single time they go they just don't do it....and even then they still forget sometimes.

AND, as for hand washing

My problem is quite the oposite one, how to convince DS to stop flushing the toilet...

Chandra i have the same problem my dd constantly flushes the toilet (shes 2.3) and when im on it she'll barge in and say "are you doing a wee mummy, oh good girl" then promptly flush the toilet if im still on it or not!!

Chandra Thu 14-Jul-05 20:37:15

Mine don't even ask! ARGGGGHHHHH!!!!
