Alderman silences parents because they have not trained their children on the toilet because he claims that a kindergarten is forced to become a professional & # 39; diaper changer & # 39; to hire to solve the problem
- School in Walsall, West Midlands reportedly hired a diaper changer for students
- According to the report, some children cannot hold a pen properly
- Others would struggle with turning pages or washing their hands and faces
A primary school has hired a professional diaper changer because too many of his students are not yet toilet trained, a council member has claimed.
Claims about the unnamed school in Walsall have led to letters being sent to parents with a list of the skills that children must have before they start.
Many young people are three years behind, according to Chris Towe, the portfolio holder of the college for education, who reported to colleagues on Monday.

Students from the West Midlands School cannot hold a pen properly, and some struggle with cutlery, Birmingham Live reports.
Some may not be able to wash their hands and faces properly and other areas where the children are struggling include turning pages, going to the toilet, and still wearing diapers.
Councilor Towe's report also raised issues related to conversations with adults and wearing diapers.
He said that children up to the age of five still wear diapers at a kindergarten.
& # 39; This cannot continue and I have had full support from schools and daycare centers & # 39 ;, he said.
& # 39; The letter will advise on what they can do or where they can get help, but this is a first step in trying to make contact with parents so that they understand their responsibilities. & # 39;

His colleague Labor Diana Coughlan blamed the demolition of Sure Start Centers and says it leaves behind vulnerable families.
The NHS website says that at the age of four children, they are expected to use the toilet during the day, although some may moisten the bed at night.
Skills that children of that age are expected to have include being able to brush their teeth, as well as dressing and undressing.
Keeping books correct and turning pages & # 39; s are also expected of students who get older, as well as the ability to draw simple shapes.
According to the guidelines, young people should be able to use scissors, string beads, listen to details, tell stories and recognize their own name.
