    Teacher told child she could wet herself

    Teacher told child she could wet herself 12th Jul 17 at 1:25 PM
    My daughter year 6 asked the teacher if she could go to the toilet during the afternoon but was refused. She waited a bit and asked again but was told to wait until hometime. My daughter said she couldn't wait that long and the teacher replied with "If you can't wait you will just have to wet yourself"

    Fuming with the teacher!

    Have you asked the teacher for their version of events?

    Been a few of these threads recently. You need to speak to the teacher, find out their version, then deal with it from there.


    Will say though, a year 6 pupil will be moving to secondary school in just a couple of months, and the rules will be stricter there

    A 6 year old should be able to hold themselves...move on.

    An 11 year old girl may need the toilet for reasons other than having a wee. Are the school okay with the idea that a girl should spend the rest of the day sitting in bloody clothes?

    Needs more details before you say that. Did the event happen just after lunch? as the teacher was explaining something vital? was it 10 minutes before the end of the day? Did more than one person ask at once? etc.


    I also have an 11 year old daughter, and she is quite capable of holding it till she can get to a toilet

    A 6 year old should be able to hold themselves...move on.

    Certainly considering taking it further, just was a bit unsure on whether it was common practice, seems harsh to me

    It was 40 minutes after lunch, quite reasonable in my eyes to need a wee after lunch. She had to wait 1hr and half

    Why would a teacher make a joke about an 11 year old asking to go to the toilet?
    And if it was a joke, why didn't she let her go?

    The response you say you got from the teacher sounds 'off' to me.

    If she was, what did the teacher say when you pointed out the reason she wanted to go to the toilet?

    If she wasn't on her period, she wouldn't have been sat in bloody clothes.

    Sounds like she needs to be told that toilet breaks are during break time

    What?? Doesn't even make any sense.


    what exactly was the detrimental effect this had? Does your daughter now use the toilet at appropriate times?

    Oh please! If it was 40 minutes after lunch, she should have gone then.
