My 2 year old son was flushing the toilet over and over again until it
stopped flushing. When I push the handle to flush the water from the
tank come in but the bowl it self does not empty.... Can you please
assist with with ideas what should I replace.
Have you asked your son what he flushed down the toilet? That is where
I would start. Then read
the recent thread "Re: I plunged, I auged, I pulled the toilet! Hooray
(chapter 3 of 3)" Teenagers
are a lot more fun than twos. :o)
No, we raised 2 boys and in their teen years we also had (not all at once) 5
of their friends. Never a toy in the toilet. We just watched them
And ummmmmm no, they were far from perfect. <G>
Gee..........you followed two-year olds every moment of the day? You
must have had
servants to do the cleaning, cooking, laundry, etc :o)
I can just see the little guy, all happy with being big enough to use
the toilet and then getting inspired to find out what will go
down when the water does :o)
In a word , yes. That is what the wife did/does. No servants, no maids.
Just mom, and the boys. She involved them in the cleaning and cooking and
laundry. So they were in fact always in sight. No reason for them not to
No, all you need is one super housewife. For two year old active boys with
busy hands and unlimited energy, you better know where they are and what
they are doing every moment of the day and night. They will push the limit
as far as you allow them, testing you every minute of the day to see if they
could get away with something. Anything. Don't want them getting into my
shop and start up power tools, or fool around with the range, playing with
matches, getting into the medicine cabinet or the cleaning chemicals in the
kitchen, playing with the microwave or testing out the 120V electrical
outlets or get into the gun case as they have all day breaking into the
combination lock. Waite a few more years and see that seven year old driving
mom's car down the road. Kids are so resourceful and cleaver and will keep
you on your toes every conscious moment of the day. A stuck toilet is a
small price for admission.
Well- a mediocre househusband can do it too.<g>
Especially if he really believes that the better we do for those first
5 yrs, the easier the next 15 will be. And it worked, too, BTW. Mine
are 21 & 20 and I'm quite proud of the way they turned out.
At two there is *no* substitute for constant supervision.
A friend of mine has a 4 year old who thinks she's 30. She (mother) went to
the bathroom for two minutes, leaving the tiny adult in her bedroom. She
comes out of the bathroom two minutes later and the kid is nowhere to be
found. She rushes outside and finds the kid on the porch putting on her
winter boots. Explanation: "I was goin' for a walk, mommy. I put my shoes on
here so the noise wouldn't bother you."
WTF? Holy shit!
