Quoting Waiting.:" That's my favorite approach to conflict resolution. Like when that cashier at Walmart short changes me, I punch that bitch in the face."


Exactly. The world needs more violence and as early as possible.

My son isn't potty trained. He will be 4 in January. He is scared of the potty. We've been introducing it slowly, and the more I push the more resistant he is. Nobody knows personally what we are going through, as someone said, children with special ( or what I like to call different) needs set their own standard. I am not going to cause my son emotional distress over it.

My son was fully potty trained, daytime and nighttime when he was 2 years old. Honestly I think MOST children should be potty trained by the time they are 3 years old . Unless there is a medical reason such as Austism or bladder/bowel issue, then they should be potty trained. I'm not talking about bed wetting either, some children do have that issue and maybe wearing a pull up at night would help. I'm sorry but a perfectly normal 4 or 5 year old wearing a diaper during the day? No.

lol!



I don't think people realize that when kids are developmentally ready, they will potty train themselves, with only a little assistance from parents. We don't force them to walk, we don't force them to talk and toilet training is just another developmental milestone.

Yep. I like to guide my children, not force them to grow up early just to make it easier on me.

Its like saying "oh bc my child isnt ready to learn he/she doesnt have to go to school" I know tons of kids who dont like school. Should they not go bc of this? Should they not be educated? It isnt so much forcing your child to PT, its giving them a push in the right direction. Some respond and some dont but some moms dont even put forth an effort. People like to say he/she will tell me when they are ready but what if they are never ready? What if they are content with their mother or father wiping their asses at 9 or 10 years old? I guarantee then the issue would be "forced." My children had no issues, except for accidents here or there but just bc they had an accident i didnt give up and say he and she isnt ready, i took my time with them. Its not like i said "oh do this or ima whoop your ass" no i took baby steps (bought the singing potty, rewarded them, praised them, etc) and got what i wanted and what they needed accomplished.

Really and a 5 year old isnt ready to use a toilet? Sure by all means send them to kindergarten in a diaper.
