I got a call from the school because ds (kindergarten) had an accident. I get there with his clean clothes and take him into the bathroom to help him change and asked him what happened. He immediately starts crying and tells me that he asked to go to the bathroom and his teacher wouldn't let him go. He said he finished his worksheet and asked to go again and she said no, so he went back to his seat. He said he started crying because he felt like he was going to pee his pants and she finally let him go, but he couldn't make it to the bathroom in time. The poor kid was so embarrassed he didn't want to go back to his classroom because he was afraid everybody would make fun of him.

I'm furious. Why the hell wouldn't she just let him go to the bathroom?!? I am thinking about sending her an email, but I need to calm down a little first. Lol.

idk...some schools have f*$%ed up bathroom policies nowadays.  i dont understand why anyone would tell a child they cant go to the bathroom, especially at that young of an age.

sorry for your little guy :(

I would be upset as well. At that age kids have a hard time "holding it". She should have just let him go.

 THIS. My 6 yo knows she needs to use the bathroom at appropriate times or hold it. There is a reason for these rules

I tell my kids to get up and walk out if they're told no, we have health issued that run in my family where holding it is bad. My grandmother passed away from it so we don't mess around with it. Let the school have a problem with my children going to the bathroom and they'll deal with me. If they were notorious for goofing off and running the hallways I could understand being cautious but kindergartners don't do that, That's more a high school thing.

Go to the Principal or if not? maybe the school supervisor, 2 years ago when my Daughter <Type 1 diabetes> was taking a test , she had to use the bathroom and was told no by the teacher!!   teacher was alerted...and it never happened again.

Around here all the kindergarten classes have bathrooms in them so the kids go as they need to and don't have to ask. I thought most schools were like that.

I would be ticked too. At that age they can't hold it for long and there is no valid reason for a kid having to ask 3 times before they are allowed to go.
