    Well this thread has been a bit of a revelation, I know you obviously have to TT your children at some point but I've never given any thought to (or heard any mention of) the wiping part!
    This is really weird to ask but how do you check their wiping skills? How do you teach them?

    Lol I'm feeling a bit nervous now about all the other fun parenting surprises that must be waiting for me that I'd never considered before

    Teach her to put her hand behind her bum (not through the space at the front of the loo) to wipe her bum if you know what i mean..then she wont be able tp reach to wipe the wrong way. This is what my bestie did with her little dd

    exactly this.

    We also had to stipulate "keep wiping until there is no more poo on the paper" because they thought one or two wipes would be ok.
    Oh, and also "count three squares and break" because they were using 10+ squares of toilet paper per wipe, and then the paper wad was too big to fit in between their little cheeks

    DS is 3.5 and I encourage him to wipe first with a wet wipe then check he has got it all.

    From 2yo. I'd let the girls have a go then I'd check with the whole "now bend over and touch your toes". I'm still checking my 2.5yo but not my 4.5yo. She is actually quite good.

    We talk about different sets of tissues for front and back.
