Mum Reveals That She Wipes Her 12-Year-Old Son's Arse
Mums have been detailing the surprising ages their kids have become properly toilet trained. Some of them said their children still need their bums wiped at age 12, for fuck's sake.
It's all been going off on Mumsnet after one user called 'Changed My Mind' said her six-year-old kid throws a strop if asked to wipe his own bum.
She said: "He wipes it at school, but refuses to do it at home, insisting me or his dad does it.
"I've just refused and he's currently having a meltdown on the toilet."
Six is nothing, though, compared to Java Bean Saint George's kid, who wipes all her kids.
She wrote: "I wipe all my kids. Oldest is 12.
"It would be cruelty leaving him dirty when he has an upset stomach. I doubt I will be wiping his bum when he is 16 or 24.
"There will come a point when he wants me to stop. Probably over the next year."
User and mum Jacques Hammer said she wipes her nine-year-old's bum "when she needs a bit of a hand" and would not rule out assisting her when she's 12.
Some of the mums weren't having any of that. Jinx Monsoon wrote: "Honestly, I'm shocked.
"Firstly, that these 12-year-olds aren't utterly mortified at having their arses wiped for them, but also at how a 12-year-old with no special needs can be so incapable of wiping themselves?
"It's not difficult is it?"
Koala Down Under concurred: "I have a friend whose son will be shouting for her to wipe him when he's 20, at the rate she's going.
"He is physically capable, he can do it at home as well as at school. You're not the arse-wipe fairy!"
'You're not the arse-wipe fairy!' is now my out of context comeback for future purposes.
