This is her school, which she attends. This was a school day when visitors are welcome. The bell had rung. I was signing her in. We were not visiting. She is a 4 year old student of the school. We were not early for school just early for the group meeting with the teacher. This was not a matter of security. She attends the school. Even the teachers could have escorted her to the bathroom without me if need be. The incident may sound blown out of proportion because I didn't give you all the details to the other situations I've already dealt with. Myself and other parents and teachers and staff have all reported different situations that we've had with this woman over the coarse of 4 years. She has been reported many times. And i have already spoken with the principal on 2 occasions. But I didn't come here for opinions from individuals about how I handled it or even come here to share all of the details of the happenings surrounding the other situations leading up to my call to the board. I came here to see if there were any legitimate legal savvy individuals that could tell me whether or not I have any legal ground to stand on. It seems I came to the wrong place. Not because I'm not getting the answers I was hoping for but because no one here has actually answered my question with any real information or direction. A mother in California sued a public school for keeping her child from using the restroom in 2014. I don't know if she won or not but clearly it is of concern to other parents. I do know, however, after being forced to hold it so many times she had to have surgery and therapy to relearn how to hold her bowels. A child's abikini to hold their bladder and bowels isn't all about self control ( to the commenter that thinks that is a part of potty training) my 4 year old still has trouble with holding her urine which is a matter of physical development, different for every child. When they say they have to go, you bring them. Immediately. At this young age it's cruel otherwise. Thank you all for your opinions on the matter but I was seeking more than opinions. I will call a real lawyer today.
