Does anybody still wipe an 8 year old after using the loo?

Or is it just me? He doesn't poo at school, waits til he gets home. Says he doesn't want to get his hands dirty, Ive no idea where he gets the OCD tendencies from, Im a lazy slut when it comes to personal hygiene.

I stopped wiping before mine started primary.

He should be able to do it himself. I'm slightly horrified TBH,

Odd little sausage?? So nobody else? I do know its unusual, but wondered how unusual.

strokey Fri 23-Aug-13 18:02:45

Clearly not Maryz. Are you implying Im a poo troll?

Absolutely not. And when I was 8 I would not have let my mum or dad do that for me.

Well thanks, obviously nobody will take this seriously thanks to you two stalkers

I stopped wiping my children's bottoms when they were 3.

HTH

No, just that you seem to have rather odd opinions and problems. The answer to this thread is clearly "no, unless the child has quite serious SN".

8? Erm, no. Barring special needs I can't see why any child of that age wouldn't be able to wipe themselves. Tell him to do his poo then have a shower if he's really bothered- that way he'll be spotlessly clean and you won't have to wipe his bot any more. Win-win.

blush I do

DS is 8, has some health issues, often gets infected skin in groin area and I suppose I'm a bit OTT about it.

I do get him to wipe first & feel really daft when I do it for him.

Before anyone asks, yes he is my PFB

WayHarshTai Fri 23-Aug-13 18:09:36

Stalkers grin.

As IF.

It's just that you are quite noticeable what with your, um, odd opinions and posts.

Are you feeling ok? <headtilt>

MirandaWest Fri 23-Aug-13 18:10:22

My DC are 9 and 7 and I haven't wiped their bottoms for years.

I have only seen a couple of threads started by this OP....what's wrong with people on here? She's not started any poo threads or anything before this one. WayHarsh no offence but you don't know the posters picking on the OP personally do you? So you're not qualified to jump in all sarcastic are you.

NeoMaxiZoomDweebie Fri 23-Aug-13 18:16:54

I do think though that you need to stop this. It's not good for a child of 8 to be wiped like that. What on earth will he do on a school residency?

I take it you are referring to the fact I give my husband oral sex on occasion? Shall I now go through your past posts to find some utterly arbitrary way to insult you?

Ive asked for the post to be removed and I shall be changing my user name. Thanks for the serious replies, I know its very late, I was hoping to sort it before next term but he gets quite upset when I encourage him to do it himself. I was hoping someone would post "Oh yes I did, he grew out of it aged 9"

strokey Fri 23-Aug-13 18:24:31

Thread to be removed even, now that everyone has me down as the girl who started the poo crumb thread

LadyMilfordHaven Fri 23-Aug-13 18:25:57

no way

Maryz Fri 23-Aug-13 18:26:58

Ok, I'm sorry, I have asked for my post to be removed.

I haven't been stalking - I haven't even AS'ed, I just happened to notice your name on a very odd thread yesterday and this looked like a very odd op.

But I apologise unreservedly if this is a real problem and I'll put on my thinking cap. My initial feeling is that if you normalise the fact that you have to wipe him, then he may well not feel clean if you aren't there to do the wiping, which would explain why he is waiting until he comes home to poo.

Sorry again smile

With DS (7) I still do it. He has gluten/dairy issues which makes things messy plus ASD, and he used to play with it and still would given half the chance. I feel bad about doing it but really just want to avoid mess. My DD (10) probably did it before reception.

@sparky have you spoken to the GP about bathing in dermol and washing all underwear at 60C? That might get on top of it.
