I think "going to talk to the potty" is a great way to handle it and just might even pull this one with my school agers (whom are the worse ones here for that).

I'm sorry but even at 4 years old, the staring thing would kind of creep me out. Maybe I'm not suppose to say that as a dcp but it would.

I completely agree that it's antiquated term that I wish would "die" off. My first real boyfriend after highschool's brother was down syndrome. I hold that very near and dear to my heart still.
