We have a rule at our preschool and daycare that if your child is still having daily poop accidents, they need to be in pull ups. We will help them with potty training. We have absolutely NO problem with potty trainign. We have actually been the ones in some cases who mention it to the parents becaus ethey show interest while at school. heck there are a couple of kids who we've basiclaly potty trained (they are there from 7:30AM-6PM 5 days a week all year). Most parents automatically send their child in pull ups when they begin potty training ro send them in underwear adn send pull ups if we have to change them because of an accident. But here's the situation... we have one child in my class who had turned 3 last June when we starte dthe year in august. His mom told us that he was potty trained....no accidents. Okay...great. We thought that was wonderful. Well, we know from experience that kids can regress when they go back to preschool and daycare after 2 1/2 months so we expected accident from all of our newly potty trained kids who had not been in camp and daycare over teh summer. Throughout the first month we were right. 4 of our kids had occasional accidents ( like once a week) for the first month and than nothing. Well, this one kid was having accidents everyday. never telling us when he had to go and not tellign us when he did have an accident. We figured this would change once he got used to school again. Not so. We were willing to work with the parents who were still insistant that he enevr had accidents at hoem adn that he was fully potty trained. Well, here we are, 4 months later and he is still having accidents everyday. Pooping and Peeing. Its not like we dont take them to the bathroom during the day... This is our bathroom schedule Preschool starts at 9. We take them ALL to the bathroom around 9:15 before snack. We take them again at 10:15 before we go outside. Again at 11:00 when we come inside. And at 12:00 before lunch. And of course anytime they ask. Once daycare starts at 1:00,we take them at 1:00 before we go outside, or to the gym we take them at 1:30 before nap. Again at 3:30 when they wake up. At 4:30 before we go outside or to the gym and 5:30 when we come back to teh classroom. Does that sound like enough? When we go as a class, they have to TRY to go. Even if they say they dont have to, they must try. We learned quickly that they will say they dont have to go adn then 2 minutes later, they have to go. If they try adn dont go, thats fine, they can ask to go when they are ready. These [arents never send in enough clothes either adn we've had days where we;ve run out of underwear for him adn we have none in the back room his size so we put him in pull ups. What else are we supposed to do?? And his mom is alwasy mad at US because we dont have extra underwear for him his parents were told that he needed a pull up at least for naptime. They refused. None o fthe other parents have a problem with this. Out of our 12 kids, 6 of them wear pull ups at naptime for just in case...and these kids started the year in pull ups at naptime so we never had to brign it up. finally last week, the parents were told that he needs to be either in pull ups or diapers. Obviously, they are refusing to do this as well. Are we out of line requesting this? Do you think under these circumstances we should let him wear underwear adn just change him 3 times a day? If he is still having 2-3 accidents everyday hes not really potty trained right? I mean, I can understand all of the accidents while potty training but 4 months seems excessive...but i dont have kids yet...just daycare experience....is 4 months of everyday accidents excessive when he is supposedly "potty trained"? I dont think we are out of line iwth this request but that is JMO. I dont have kids so I was curious at some paretns thoughts about this situation.
