    Going to the toilet during lessons?

    I don't let children go to the toilet during lesson time. One of the mums have complained has I made her boy wait all afternoon?

    Would it bother you as a parent?

    How old was the child? I think it depends whether the child is old enough to appreciate that you're supposed to go at break and lunch if you need to go.

    If it was a well behaved child who doesn't usually ask then I would have more of a problem with making them wait, as they are probably the ones who really need to go.

    Year 2.

    I only let them go if they have a medical note, he asked 5 minutes after lunch and had to hold on until hometime.

    Sorry I don't agree with you at all, a child should be allowed to go to the toilet. I wouldn't like being told to wait a couple of hours so why should a child.

    So you expect everybody's digestive system to work in time with lesson times? I hope you never have cystitis or Montezuma's revenge before being able to get a doctor's note because I expect you would not quickly nip out to the loos before home time yourself, right?

    Actually yes I don't go to the toilet unless I can get cover to watch the children. They should not be guzzling so much water they can't last a couple of hours without a wee.

    Well, I hope you are not going to have an embarrasing experience one day when you can't get cover .. we are always advised to have plenty of water during the day and it is not always down to the amount you drink how often you need the toilet .. you really expect a 6 year old to go thirsty so they don't need the toilet? smh

    No I expect them to go for a wee at playtime and lunchtime.
