recalcitrant parenting

Jasper has decided he’s going to start going to the toilet on the toilet.

And I am just not having a bar of it.

I don’t care if we are coming into summer or that he is about to turn two.

I just won’t do it.

The accidents. All the wet clothes. The having to deal with squished poo in underpants. The only able to go somewhere where you know toilets are in plentiful supply.

I don’t care about the child’s readiness. What about parental readiness.

I’m not ready. It’s too soon. Too hard.
