i have a 4 1/2 year old daughter and she has been potty trained for quite some time now but she always calls us to the bathroom to wipe her butt. LOL ! i know thisis very normal but im just wondering when do children use the bathroom completely on their own ? (wiping themselves )

I'm with you on this one. She wipes after #1 no problem. When #2 happens she freaks out. And wants mom or dad to do it. HELP!

My daughter is 7 1/2 and still will call me in sometimes to help her. I tell her she shouldn't need my help unless there is a problem. I think kids need to be able to wipe themselves by the time they go to kindergarten. Kindergarten teachers do NOT want to wipe kids' butts. What I did with my kids is to tell them that they needed to wipe and then I would check to make sure they did a good job. This was a way to ease them into doing it completely themselves without you. :)
