My 3 year old has been taking her feces and smearing it everywhere (she has even put it in her mouth. It has happened 5 days in a row now. The first three day I explained how it was not Ok, and that she would need to tell us when she had "poop" in her diaper. She continued to do it, and yesterday I put all her toys in another room for a few hours. I do not like punishing..... and I typically let allow her to do quite a bit, but we draw the line at things that are harmful to herself or others. I was hoping she would not do it today and she did. I lost it, I did not hit her or anything but I yelled pretty loud. I feel absolutely horrible, but I was just so upset. I apologized to her, but I feel guilty. I do not know what else to do so I am hoping I could get some advice. I also worry about her speech. She comprehends about 60 or 70 percent of what we are saying and that worries me also. I think this makes communicating with her very difficult. Please, any advice would be appreciated.
