I'm bribing my kid.
Yup, bribing my kid. With all the potty issues we have had, I didn't want her getting sick, being constipated or in pain. So, I bribe her. If she poops, she gets a "special treat". She bought into it (for now) and is even saying she wants a "special treat" as she's pulling down her pants.
One day, she did it on demand.
To ease my guilt, I have decided that her "special treats" are going to help her with her problem. We usually give her a prune ball, some of my infamous chocolate pudding or organic cookies. We put the treat in an Easter egg and she gets to open it like a surprise. The other day, just to switch things up, we gave her a sticker and she thought that was neat.
So far, no poop issues.
As for my lingering feelings of guilt, I'm going to tell myself that I'm doing this for my daughter's good health and that it's not bribing at all.
