For example, we just recently started letting her get out of bed to go potty without calling out to us first. Now after we tuck her in, we can hear her get up 4 or 5 times before she settles in, and it is clear she is doing it to avoid laying in bed, not because she needs to pee that many times. I suppose there is some hope that with time the behavior will extinguish, though I have seen similar behaviors in the past go on indefinitely until we enact some drastic behavioral intervention. Perhaps this reflects on our parenting more than anything else?
