I have a soon to be 5 yr old. Sometimes I let him try and wipe himself (NO.2)but he just doesn't do a good job and usually makes a mess. When do they usually start being able to wipe themselves? Do they need practice?

Yes, they need to practice!! When they go to school (or a friendshouse) they will need to take care of that themselves. I will wipe a "friend" of my kids, but I really don't want to do that!! Teachers at school will not do it at all. They stand at the door, and will help with a button or something, but they won't go in and wipe all the little one's bottoms for them.
My 5yo was having trouble doing a good job, but he is getting better at it now. Practice, practice, practice :)

"I think my son was about 6 when he started going unassisted."
Did he go to kindergarten?
