Parents have been criticised for “outsourcing” the job of toilet training their child.
A family advertised for a potty trainer for their three-year-old child and offered to pay $100 an hour to have her taught in time for the holidays.
The parents posted the advertisement on a childcare website, saying they needed their daughter to be toilet trained by 23 December.
“We are very conscious that our daughter should be using a toilet by now, and with the in laws coming over for Christmas, I am desperate to get her fully using the toilet,” the ad read.
Potty Trainer Needed: Apply Now!
“We already have a housekeeper who takes care of our daughter day to day, but we would like someone to solely concentrate on getting her using the toilet.”
“Both of us work full time in demanding jobs, and we have previously tried to toilet train her, but unfortunately due to our busy careers we’ve realised we simply do not have the time to do so.”
“10 hours of training, over five days per week would be ideal, but we are flexible and are willing to be negotiable for the right person,” they said.
While some have praised the couple for admitting they don’t have the time, others have slammed the concept as “ludicrous.”
