Anyway........ Josh has been - for lack of a better word - 'grinding' the floor or couch. He use to do this a little bit when he was younger, but now seems to want to do it a lot more often. I first thought it may be out of boredom...... then we thought recently, it may be because we are trying to potty train and he just plain doesn't 'want' to. He understands the concept, but maybe he just isn't getting something. Could it be that he is having the 'sensation' that he needs to go 'pee' and doesn't want to, or could it be something else?
I have read that some kids do this and that we shouldn't get angry with him, but when we try to move him or distract him, he gets really angry ----- and sometimes he even works up a sweat when he does this. What we have tried this weekend is to say 'ok, let's go potty.' He says 'no potty.' pretty loudly and then we say 'o.k., that's fine, but when you do that, we think you need to go potty.' Sometimes he stops when we do this, but not often.
Any ideas? Anyone else have a little guy that likes to do this 'dance?'
Thanks for any input.
