My daughter started smearing poo on her sister’s clothes and all over the toilet walls ( and I’m talking big thick chunky smear ). She either says she doesn’t know she does it or its because she’s angry at someone. She will do it if I say no to her over anything. She can tell you what she should do instead when she’s angry but still does this instead. I’m trying to toilet train my 2.6 yo but it’s hard to teach him properly when he watches his sister do this. This is the most recent in a long line of misbehaviour including spreading toothpaste and lotions everywhere, writing all over the walls and tv in permanent marker, breaking 4 pairs of her sisters glasses and constantly punching her little brother (or giving him “chinese burns” ). Each time when get one behaviour dealt with she starts another, but we can’t seem to stop the poo. She is an angel at school and I’ve had the teachers investigate for problems there but they can’t find any. She is very bright and among the top in her class. I don’t understand this behaviour and am completely stumped. We’re at the point of ignoring it except for making her clean it up but we can’t keep that up if we are to toilet train our boy.
