It is ridiculous but my 11 year old still need nappy rash creams if I don’t help him with washing him backside. I did it as long as I can remember (my mum say when I was 2 years old). what can I do? if I stop doing it, he has blocked the toilets up 3 times by emptying a whole toilet role in the there

Does your DS have a physical disability or a special need? I'm rather surprised and 11 year old still wants his mother to wipe his bottom. My DS struggled to clean his bottom after a pooh when he wanted to be idependent I bought a box of Kandoos (supermarkets have other and own brand options) they worked for us.

They are flushable wipes but we put them in the little lidded bathroom bin to avoid risk of blockage.

There is a thread in Adoption about a 7 year old with the same problem, maybe some idea for you there.

Does he wash his own dirty underwear? What does he do when he has to go somewhere else like school or a friend's house?
