My DD who is 4 and a few months is obsessed with bottoms and poo.

There is the constant talking about it ... Like she's being rude or naughty. She also encourages DS at 2.5 ish so I have both of them do it. Bath time involves bum slapping and poking ALL THE TIME.

I am so over it! I have tried ignoring the behaviour but it seems to have gotten worse. Now I just say bottoms are private and she's not to encourage her brother to touch hers and that talking about poo is yucky. Bath time is cut short as soon as she starts wriggling it in his face.

Any ideas on how to discourage this obsession?

take away certain privileges when she starts up with the behaviour?
reward chart, go x amount of time without mentioning it and she gets a reward of some sort?

Have you asked her why she is so interested in it? why she does it? Do you think it is just to get a rise out of you or for some other reason?

I would probably giggle to myself ninja.gif

Kids think bums are hilarious. They outgrow it.

Bath them seperately?  but yeah bums are pretty funny at that age.

How about bathing them separately from now on and rehashing your night time routine that way they do not do this and they get a little privacy. Not that they should be ashamed of their bodies but I think since your DD is getting older I think that she could do some damage if she is not careful and visa versa.

Don't worry about it - just a stage. I would giggle secretly. My girls have finally started growing out of the stage of singing loud songs about their vagina (I'm sure the neighbours could hear). Eventually, self-consciousness kicks in. Don't sweat it. :-)

Yeah, exactly the same here. 4.5 DD and 2.5 DS. I ignore it up to a point, but if it gets too out of control I give warnings. Three warnings and something gets taken away. Works for us.

OMG...jut spewwed my coffee everywhere in laughter reading this.  My DD 4 in 4 weeks HAS.NOT.STOPPED saying and talking about this since she started kinder.  She thinks it is hilarious and I'm just constantly telling her 'nice girls don't talk like that' to no avail.  She makes up songs and dances and her 18month old sister thinks she is hilarious.
I've given up..especially when I was out walking the other day and I saw a dad and son bike riding, the son turned to a friend and yelled ' Bye poopoo head".  Dad yelled at him to stop being rude and the son was laughing his head off singing about poopoobumbums.  It actually made me feel better about my DD's obsession. (hence why I spewed my coffee when I read the topic laughing2.gif

Glad to hear I dont have the only child who sings about poo poo and bum bums. He also sits in the car encourging his sister to say penis and willy. I try to ignore it but when we are out in public he generally needs a stern reminder that its not ok.

My son does do this and my 2yo DD, and all their freinds.

They think bums, poos, fanny's, doodle's are all hillarious.  ..their cousins are the same also. I stopped reacting and it as slowed down a fair bit.  When we are out I just give them 'the look'.

Although DH accidently did a break of wind at breakfast time and I think you would have heard the laughter all the way to Ularu!

Maybe she is picking it up from you? Do you say poo and bum a lot? Has she seen you wriggling your bum in your DPs face?

True story: DS4, son of a relative of mine announced in the fish and chip shop the other day: "My willy is the centre of the universe".

My DH makes up plenty of poo and boobie songs for DS, thankfully he can't understand yet.

I think they'll grow out of it.

My son (6) was JUST growing out of this stage until someone gave him a whoopee cushion for his birthday ...sigh. Apparently bums, poo and farts are hilarious...certainly made Benny Hill a lot of money! In the end we ignored it as much as we could, and it died down ...

Bums and what comes out of them - hilarious! I don't think they grow out of it either - the other night on QI the five adults on the panel were all laughing over fart jokes.

This is a fabulous post, I haven't stopped laughing. My DS5 and DS2.5 think their nuddy bottom dance is hysterical, I have to lock myself in the laundry cupboard so they won't find me whilst I am laughing fit to burst. They have also taken to wearing their underpants on their heads, making sure the hair sticks out the leg holes like ears and being undies monsters.

They only do the bottom dance when I have gotten them out of the bath, not in the bath thank goodness. Although the youngest did it in the pool change-room last week to my great embarrassment.

I have told them it is only for at home, and if they don't do it when we are out I sing them a ridiculous song I made up about stinky underpants as a reward. They love the song so much that the threat of not having fun with Mum after the bath is enough to get them to stop....majority of the time.

A friend who has two boys has the problem that they love to strip to their underwear and wrestle on the lawn, they even thought it was hysterical when she gave up trying to get them inside on a hot day and turned the sprinklers on. And a friends little girl keeps getting herself undressed and running around naked.

A mother of six once told me to just pick my battles, and as long as they were not getting hurt, or being totally gross when in public, just to let it go they will grow out of it...(But I got it on tape one day so that we can all have a good laugh together when they are older).

Bums ARE funny. The word bum is funny. Girls usually tend to grow out of that stage. Boys...well I'm still waiting.

Do they go to daycare?  My 4 year old DD comes home with lots of poo/bum/fart talk from there.

Posted 29 November 2012 - 01:31 PM

As pps have said, it really is just a stage. It is very common to find poo poo bum bum funny at that age. My niece is in Year 2 and has only just recently stopped thinking this was hilarious.

Too true, too true, my DH and his brother are both very well educated men who are mostly gentlemen, but when they get together inevitably the conversation takes the downwind nose dive into the "bottom" of the gassy barrel.

In order to stay sane I will vainly keep up my mantra "I love my boys, they will grow out of this".

On a side note I was informed on Monday by my gorgeous nephew 4, that he was more intelligent than others because he has a second brain ..... in his bum. His mother told me not to laugh .... how do you not laugh in appreciation for that sort of cheekiness.

Bums are kinda funny!

DD8 has kinda outgrown it - she loves a loud fart though! but the rest of us DH48 Me 44 and DS6 still laugh a lot about bums and poo and all other related bum stuff.

We call it the "cornholio" at our house (some of you may be too young for the Beavis and Butthead reference). Always funny.

Nobody pokes their fingers in anyone else's though. I would put a stop to that!
