Is 4.10 DD too old to do wee behind a tree?

She is fully toilet trained but if she gets caught short in the middle of a large park, what to do?

Not too old - I'd do the same if there weren't any toilets nearby!

I'd rather a child wee'd behind a tree than on a slide/seesaw etc. i know for a fact that our local park has seen much worse!

I've done it & I'm 40 grin

Rather that than wet clothes.

It's called a country wee where I live

You're never too old to wee behind a tree. The only difference is if you saw an adult do it you might feel a bit shock or blush.

I reckon you don't feel that way when you see a child weeing behind a tree. I think the cut-off point is maybe 9 or 10...? But even then I'd say "go for it" if the child in question was caught short and not embarrassed to wee in the woods!

Definitely not!

Not a problem at all, much better for everyone than wet knickers!

God no, wee away.
My ds, 4.5, still pees against my car tyre in car parks if he needs to.
If it was a dog nobody would bat an eyelid.
If youve gotta go, youve gotta go.

We call it a 'nature wee'!

No. Picnic wee wee's are fine no matter how old you are! Might want to be a bit more discreet if your 35 tho!

I let mine wee in the garden in the summer (very lazy I know). I grew up in the country and the al fresco wee is second nature to me.

Grown men do it behind trees all the time when they are out walking.

If the choice is weeing behind a tree or weeing her pants, what are you supposed to do?

I regularly wee in woods when we are doing an all day walk and there are no toilets. I can now stealth wee if I'm wearing a skirt. You squat down having already subtly wriggled knickers down and pretend to be looking at a plant or something and wee. The skirt hides it grin
