Does anyone know of any scared straight programs for 3 year olds who keep filling toilets with entire boxes of facial tissues?

And don't suggest a higher shelf, Einstein. There is no shelf high enough.

I need a padlocked safe.

Items I would keep in a padlocked safe if I had a padlocked safe: Kleenex, vaseline, body lotion, deodorant, cosmetics, digital camera, checkbook and cat.

maybe this is a bad idea, but: turn the "let's see if this flushes" into a game (....I mean you'd have to be the referee & decide what could or couldn't be tested) and then lead up to the really big experiment...could POOP be flushed?

Probably that wouldn't work. Kids are too smart. But his obsession with flushing things seems like it could be a positive step away from huggies. (...hope he doesn't try to flush his pull-up pants! Ay yi yi!) At least the flushing tissues behavior sounds better than the wall-smearing nightmares you wrote about awhile back.

I hope you're on a city or town sewer. If not, hope you know a good plumber!

Are you sure he's not sneaking onto your computer at night and getting a big kick out of the stories you tell about him? Hah!

It doesn't last forever. Hang in there.

yes, i'd rather scoop wet tissues out of the toilet than scrub vaseline off the walls. i wonder what that says about me?

Vaseline stays forever.

You could always say you're going to flush him, but that would mean hours of therapy down the road. This is why I'll never be a parent.
