New Toileting Regime

Alex has not gone back to the toileting successes we had before the disruptions of the summer and the school and driver troubles of the fall.  So we needed to make some changes.

We're getting rid of the earning an overnight trip to Montreal by being clean.  He's never earned it, so it may be acting as a discouragement.

We're going to start rotating the big reward: one trip to Montreal and one trip to Fun Haven with a couple of hours on OC Transpo.  That should help with reward saturation.  (It's going to be a bit of hell of Dave and I, since neither of us do well at Fun Haven, but we'll suck it up and make it work.)

We're adding one more sit on the toilet session at the end of the day.  He's been having a lot of BMs in his room in the evening and we're hoping that a final toileting session will encourage it to happen in the toilet instead.

We still have to finish the current cycle under the old system, which may take another two or three weeks (or more).  Hopefully once we switch over, he can go back to having 3-4 successes per week instead of 1 or 2.
