    it is a matter of communication. explain what is going to happen, and what needs to happen. you might be able to allow the dirty nappy to stay there for a little while, but it will have to be removed. somethings are just not negotiable, other things are. so communication is the key. I would always respect a child with regards to silly play, like tickling, or such, but when it comes to crossing the street, or nappy changes, then im the boss. that is how life works. some time we can be in charge, sometimes some one else is in charge. marie

    Following with interest and OP I hope you don't mind if a add a little question that some of you very knowledgable mums could help me with..... What about doctors? I have been thinking about taking my son to have his testes checked (not descended) but I'm not sure how I will manage it if he is distressed by having them checked. Thanks x

    I have said to ds that the Dr is only there to help and he/she can only touch you if mummy or daddy is with you.
    Now while ds is young that will work for us until he is old enough to understand more about when someone can touch you and what is right and wrong..

    We use this as well, we're off to a urologist next, and DS understands that even though it is awkward the dr is there to check everything is ok. But that nobody not even dr's can touch your private parts without mum or dad there.
