    Teaching assistant wouldn't let daughter go to the toilet

    Teaching assistant wouldn't let daughter go to the toilet 16th Jun 17 at 10:39 AM
    Hi, just after a bit of advice.

    My daughter 6 year 2, says that the TA took the class yesterday and that 5 minutes after lunch she needed a wee. She said she asked and was told no and that she should have gone at lunch. The TA made her wait all afternoon despite asking 3 more times and explaining that holding her wee was giving her stomach ache. My little girl said she was bouncing up and down and had to keep her legs crossed. They don't have an afternoon break so she had to hold on for 2 hours.

    Should I speak to her regular teacher

    Before Christmas we had an afternoon long celebration assembly. All the children are sent to the loo before, On the walk to the hall a girl then said she really badly needed the toilet, in this case I believe that was too bad and denied her request, she could have wet herself during assembly for all I cared. She didn't though she waited.
    Could not have not needed it that badly

    You should hope that if you are using your real name that some of your childrens parents don't figure out who you are and raise a complaint, more than enough reason to detailed in this thread

    Likewise, I hope "Vicky Taylor" is just a bored WUM. If she really is a teacher, and stupid enough to post using her real name, I hope someone reports her.

    I'm struggling to believe that Vickytaylor is a year 2 teacher with 4 years experience (plus training) and thought it appropriate to use her name as a user name, rather than something random.

    The vast majority of six years manage to not go to the toilet during the night, don't they?

    Teenagers use it as an excuse to get out of class - those who actually have a medical condition get issued a toilet pass and girls are allowed when *necessary*, but in the majority of cases, it's simply a means to be somewhere they shouldn't/get up to something they shouldn't without supervision.


    The Offspring never seemed to need toilet facilities during lessons when they were moved to the block with what were rumoured to be 'haunted' toilets, nor did any of their class - their teachers remarked on how thirty kids instantly gained absolute bladder control once they weren't using the nice, non-haunted ones. They'd use the nicer toilets during break and lunch without problems.
    I could dream to wide extremes, I could do or die: I could yawn and be withdrawn and watch the world go by.

    Yup you are officially Rock n Roll

    Did she wear a dress? Because if she did, how do you know she didn't wet herself? Her knickers might have been totally soaked, but as you say, why would you care!

    They also don't drink at night or just before.

    She had had ample opportunities to go so no I didn't care, She did wear a dress so i suppose it is possible, she should have gone before assembly.

    Really? Most kids I know have drinks before bed, then go to loo, brush their teeth, put their pyjamas on and then go to sleep. Many have drinks beside their bed, too.

    We were never allowed to leave class to go to the toilet and I was in primary school in the 90s. I only remember 1 child ever wetting herself and that was in primary 1 (reception). Our school actually locked the toilet doors during lessons and if you did have a toilet pass you had to walk to the office and use the toilet there. Do children now have smaller bladders?

    You will have some who will agree with you Vicky ! However I can only assume they are not parents !

    As a parent the thought of your 6 year old, sitting for two hours would infuriate you. So I'm guessing the above are also childless. But I stand by what I said earlier your in the wrong profession with your attitude !

    That's physiological though, it's because ADH production increases at night, nothing to do with needing to go but holding it.

    In a sense who cares what you think? Your word is not the last say on the topic, obviously there are going to be differences in opinions.
    There will be some that think the TA was right and others that don't.
    The past cannot be changed, the child didn't get to go to the loo during lesson time and didn't mess themselves during that time.
