Wearing Diapers To Kindergarten

May 12th 2012 21:04
In ancient days, when parents had to wash cloth diapers, kids were being toilet trained as soon as they could sit up.

This wasn't just laziness, kids used to cry when they were wet or dirty. Infants didn't like being in dirty diapers and made their views known. They never became accustomed to being in a soiled nappy. And never were supposed to become accustomed.

Parents would buy a 'potty chair' and sit the baby on it, and do whatever they could to encourage that the deposit be made in the potty.

Most mothers knew when their child had to go and it was only on rare occasions that a baby would have to cry during the day to have his diaper changed.

Even as early as three months a baby would rarely be in a dirty diaper if his mother was around. She usually caught the solid waste in the potty and it was just the liquid waste that would require the change of diaper.

Many children were toilet trained by nine months, a few kids were wearing diapers at the age of one year, but this was not common.

That was then, before the invention of the disposable diaper. Now kids as old as five are wearing diapers and used to sitting in their own waste.

Seeing a kid at two or three happily running around with a loaded diaper is normal. Sitting in their own filth is no longer discomforting to a child. In fact, it's become rather normal.

I have seen kids of three, open their diaper, lay a pile on the floor, close their diaper and go about their business. The parents are too busy to toilet train the kid. Many have some philosophy about it to the extent that they don't make an attempt, even with a child like this, to introduce a potty.

In ancient days nursery schools didn't take a child who wasn't toilet trained. Now, they charge that bit more and keep a set of nappies available.
