My 6 year old "forgets" to wipe his butt... SERIOUSLY?!

I just dont understand it. He did this a lot when he was 5, but was fine after i told him how important it is to be clean. Now hes doing it again. Like seriously, how do you just forget to wipe?! Does anyone elses kid have this issue or is mine just a weirdo? LOL

  • My son is 8... I think it is a boy thing. We use flushable wipes to help him remember and do a good job.

  • I think kids just get so busy and in a hurry to go back to whatever they were doing that they forget. Yuck!

  • This is why little boys smell like poop when you volunteer in class! Seriously. They are bad wipers. They may wipe once and just drag a smear of poop to their balls. At least that is my experience with boys. Gah! SO frustrating!
