Does your 5 yr old wipe themselves when they go #2?

Dd5 still call me to wipe her when she goes #2 and I don't know how to teach her how to wipe. I've tried to show her and explain it to her but she says her arms aren't long enough, lol! When she does try she never gets herself clean. Does anyone else have this problem?? Ill be so glad when I can get through my dinner without hearing "mom I'm done come wipe me."

My son had a hard time wiping until clean so we have flushable wipes on the back of the toilet. I also send a pack of wipes in his backpack just in case & we have no issues at all. You can get wipes in the same aisles as toilet paper but make sure that what you get is flushable!

She doesn't go at school at all, she waits until she gets home. I made her wipe herself last night and she whined and cried forever before she wold try and then she used so much toilet paper that she clogged the toilet! But she got the job done!

Yeah, we have problems here too....working on teaching my 4 year old but the arms just dont reach well. We use flushable wipes and that helps some.
