Quoting proudlypreggers:" What exactly do you consider a setback? I ask bc would you consider an 8 year old who has a bad dream ... [snip!] ... the day did they have to go. PTing doesnt consist of just sitting your child on the potty day in and day out until they go... "
Quoting proudlypreggers:" Its like saying "oh bc my child isnt ready to learn he/she doesnt have to go to school" I know tons of ... [snip!] ... steps (bought the singing potty, rewarded them, praised them, etc) and got what i wanted and what they needed accomplished."
Quoting On hold.:" My daughter let me know when she was ready and I followed her cues. She did amazingly and we had NO ... [snip!] ... we had NO set backs. Pushing a child to sit on a potty does not guarantee they will be ready to utilize it when they need to."
Quoting boobook:" <blockquote><b>Quoting proudlypreggers:</b>" Its like saying "oh bc my child isnt ready ... [snip!] ... start school to not be in diapers, because by kinrgarten barring medical conditions kids or neglect etc. kids will be trained."
Quoting £egendary Zeppelin:" that's the worst comparison ever children start learning... well pretty much as soon as they're born. being potty trained isn't the same as getting your education lmao. "
Quoting proudlypreggers:" Its somehing that has to be taught and learned so how is it any different from educating them? Isnt this what they do in school... learn"
Quoting £egendary Zeppelin:" what makes you say that? my kid literally PTed himself overnight. I really didn't teach him. I think ... [snip!] ... their own pace. You can't force them to be advanced, to learn how to read when YOU want them to. They learn on their own time. "
Quoting proudlypreggers:" Yes but my question was since they dont like it should you not make them go to school? Not what they learn or how they learn."
Quoting Atticus & Rhys's Mommy:" Really and a 5 year old isnt ready to use a toilet? Sure by all means send them to kindergarten in a diaper. "
Quoting £egendary Zeppelin:" I don't think it has anything to do w/ if they 'like' it or not. They just aren't ready. Why is that ... [snip!] ... ready. Why is that such a hard concept to grasp? & no, idgaf about what my kid likes or doesn't like in some aspects. "
Quoting Epic Big Head:" Why not? If they are physically unable to Potty train then yes they absolutely should go to kindergarten ... [snip!] ... a diaper. My daughter probably will and I know a lot of other children who will be in mainstream kindergarten still in diapers."
Quoting proudlypreggers:" I get what you are saying but my question is how long do you wait until they are ready before you introduce ... [snip!] ... they know that may be all they are going to do. Not every child is going to show signs, SOME you have to show and theyll do."
Quoting £egendary Zeppelin:" I think introducing them to a potty is essential, yea. mine has always enjoyed watching me go lmfao ... [snip!] ... w/out special needs at age 5 even who isn't PTed, so I don't know anyone at age 6-7+ either. Lol. It really isn't a big deal."
Quoting proudlypreggers:" This is what i have been saying. Some moms wont even introduce it to their children. Some moms like ... [snip!] ... tbh some are, im just saying there are certain steps that you can take along with your child to help them become ready."
