In the recent thread "Potty Training Age", by Wombat, it was interesting to me that most of us think it is generally not healthy for kids to be in diapers past the socially accepted norm of 3 years of age or so. As a followup to this thread, I'd like to ask if YOU where trained too early?
I was successfully trained before the age of 2 years, no doubt in preparation for the birth of my sister. I have LONGED to wear diapers ever since, so my opinion is although I was physically ready for big boy pants, I was not emotionally ready to give up the security of diapers and intimacy with Mom at diaper change time at such a young age.
I believe my emotional development would have have quicker if I was allowed to stay in diapers for another year or so, or at least needed diapers for bedwetting. I wonder if that emotional need had been met back then if I would still feel an emotional needed for diapers today.
