I watched a rerun of nanny 911 or super nanny one of those nanny shows, and the parents had let their children who were aged around 5-7 wear diapers I think cause they werent all potty trained yet...the nanny strongly disapproved of it, saying babying them is wrong and all that jazz and took their baby blankets and pacis away saying they are useless security blankets and holding them back.
I honestly dont think no harm can come of it to be honest I think that letting the child chose when is the right time to potty train works out better...gives them more confidence and more self esteem. I could be wrong but I was potty trained when I was about 3 so I didnt have that option so I really dont know. I would have liked to have that option though if I ever have children I would ensure them to be independent and give them more freedom if they want to stay in diapers or potty train I will present both options to them.
Either way I always hear parents complain they want their kids to hurry up and move out of the house and the parents dont get enough "alone" time....and then once their kid is all grown up they suddenly change their tune and say I wish they were little again
So what do you guys think if you had a kid would you let them chose? and once you were younger would you have liked to have the option?
oh and PS to super Nanny if you ever take my paci away you will be the one in the naughty chair
