As you know potty training has finally gone into full swing here in the Randomhousehold. The boy has decided he will now do wees' on the potty but, to quote Pirate Pete's potty book, "he's finding doing a poo much harder".
Have you met new parents? I really can't tell the difference between them or crack addicts. In fact, I'm convinced they're the same. Bloodshot eyes, pale skin, always say stuff like; "it's really great you should try it". They don't realise how desperately unhappy they are.
There is no doubt that the parents of children who have wetting or soiling problems know the public perception of these problems and much of their fear is of being tarred with the 'bad parent' brush by other parents and teachers.
