I've been considering an idea that I find really intriguing. While it should be a given that the root cause behind the various diaper interests would be widely varied, wouldn't most of this just be a matter of a failure in potty training?
I ask this because potty training is necessarily more than teaching a child how to use the potty. In fact it is primarily a matter of convincing the child that they should use the potty for, well, all things potty. So at some level wouldn't this come down to a failure of potty training?
Along this same line of thinking, what about bed wetting? Would this also be a failure, or delay in, potty training?
I know there will be some exceptions but what do you all think?
I know this topic may stir a bit of controversy as there are some who seem opposed to any attempt at explaining the origins of diaper interest. This is not what I am trying to explore here. Rather, I am just looking to explore how others feel about these ideas.
