Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

i think that something you should be concern about he will be in school soon in you wouldnt want something like that to happy. is he potty train.
For most kids that age, it is a not-so-subtle cry for attention.My recommedation is to not make a big deal about it. Simply tell him in a calm way  "this is not what we do" or something to that effect. Then put his clothes right and get on with your day. If he is just looking for attention, he should quit after trying it a few more times. If it is something more than attention seeking, I would suggest getting a parenting book or two from the library for more ideas.Good luck :)
