  • i don't have a routine that i use at home. he goes to head start. i think the problem is there's only one teacher there at the moment

  • Look for another Preschool that doesn't restrict this. My girlfriends son was in one that they actually potty trained the kids there. It was part of a daycare.

  • I would switch too and find a pre-school or day care that has a potty training room until he gets the swing of thing until he is comfortable at school.

  • Head start is for all ages, they have to have other solutions. Start a routine at home, maybe ask the teacher to have a small timer that goes off every two hours and that is his que to go potty, therefore reducing or eliminating accidents.

  • if he isnt having accidents at home maybe the problem is there. I would talk to the supervisor and ask them if they are taking enough potty breaks. Maybe he is too excited and not wanting to go and she isnt making him go. The teachers job during break should be to make sure he takes a time out to visit the potty even if he says he doesnt need to go

  • I'd tell her that she MUST take him to the potty when he says he has to go and there won't be anymore accidents!!! Or maybe he's afraid to ask her at all!!! Talk To her supervisor about this. What good would staying home do if he's potty trained at home.... then he's Potty trained!!!

  • Guys..she said he doesn't have MANY accidents at home. So, that means he isn't totally trained yet.

  • his biggest problem is poop which he hasn't done at school yet. at home with pee he usually does pretty well. sometimes if his thing doesn't point downward it gets on the floor and sometimes he doesn't take his underwear off.

  • Schools can not discriminate against children who are not yet potty trained. If you wanted to you can fight it. Ask them what else can be done. Maybe an extra change of clothes or have them give him a potty schedule.
