I'm generally a lurker, but have been on these boards since my daughter was born. I have a question for those of you with 3 year olds that are starting traditional preschool this year. My DD will be starting a 2 day a week program. The children have to be fully potty trained. DD is fully potty trained and has been for a few months. The director of the school mentioned at the open house that they are not allowed to help the children with wiping. I fully understand the (sad, but true) implications that schools face now when dealing with children and private body parts. However, in my heart I just feel that she is too young to be expected to wipe completely alone. She practices here, and know what to do...but in general she is just getting the outside skin of both areas and not where you really need to get! (She just turned 3 in July so she is a "young" 3.) It is making me sad to think of her NEEDING help, and them not doing it. A friend of mine has her child enrolled at a preschool that allows the teacher to help with toileting....and I'm starting to wonder if I should consider that. Am I crazy and just overthinking things?? Or is this a legitimate concern? I have typical preschool Mommy worry, but the thought of her asking for help and them telling her no is just making me sad.
