Managing Toilet Use in Public

Posted August 6, 2013

 

  • Planning ahead is very helpful. If possible, know where the bathrooms are located so you don’t have to search for them when you need them.

  • Think about the clothes your parent is wearing those days and make sure they are easy to take off in a public bathroom.

  • If you have established a routine about times of day and how you handle toiletling at home, try to stick to that as much as possible when you’re out.

  • Be sensitive. Embarrassment can make the toileting experience even more difficult.
