Following the head of Ofsted's complaints today that so many children are starting school unable to speak properly, dress themselves or use the loo, I am despairing of one of my grandsons, age 3 1/2, who absolutely will not countenance getting out of nappies. My daughter has tried just about everything: left him naked (he just pees where he stands), bought him spiderman pants etc. (he puts them on over his nappy), tried putting him on the potty (he just gets off it), and so on. My daughter has always said, quite rightly, that he'll do it 'when he's ready', and I know that trying to force the issue can be completely counterproductive, but time is marching on and I'm just wondering if anyone has any brilliant suggestions!
