Some of you may have experienced outages with the site over the weekend. This was due to some system maintenance that had to be performed on the server which hosts my site. All efforts were made to minimize the duration of these momentary interruptions in service. I offer my apologies to those of you who were inconvenienced or otherwise disappointed by the outages.
This section is designated to recognize and commend boys who demonstrate extraordinary resistance to toilet training and/or a desire to wear diapers as indicated by their parents. This particular post comes from the Yahoo group "Diapersbeyond4":

Subject: (unknown) Soon my son will be in the first grade and still wears diapers. currently he is kindergarden wearing diapers. The program lets out and noon so he only goes to school for 3.5 hours. In the fall he is suppose to be in the first grade which last all day so him being in diapers will be a promblem. the school says they will not let him in the first grade wearing diapers. i have tried everything to make him use the potty he wont. he tells me he likes to wear diapers and wants to wear them for ever. i have tried just putting him underwear and making him clean himself. this just turns out to be a big mess for me. i even tried the peer preasure approach , hoping he will be embarassed out of diapers. quite frankly, he does not care who see him wearing diapers. it doesnot bother him. any one else expeerience this or have any advise. thanks
Perhaps he's a possible future reader of and contributor to this website. To him I say "good job, and don't give up!"
This was followed up on appropriately by "one of our own":

Subject: (unknown) I have to admit, I understand why your son likes diapers. Diapers feel good and are, for reasons I can't explain in words, comforting. They are very handy and a great reason not to have to stop playing or watching TV,etc. to use the bathroom. They even feel good when you are wetting in them and yes, even when you poop in them. Diaper changes give that extra-special, personal attention time. I know this from experience. I was like your son. I chose to wear them. I loved my diapers and wearing them and didn't really care who saw me in them. My schools allowed me to wear the diapers (I think because my mother convinced them I had a medical problem) and if I needed changing it was by the school nurse, or later by myself. I got teased by peers, but my love of wearing diapers overrode it. There are a lot of details to it that I won't go into and I don't usually admit all of this to the general public. I just wanted to let you know I understand his feelings about diapers. He will probably always have these feelings. You will undoubtedly get different advise from others on how to handle your problem which may or may not work. My advise will be what I think would have worked on me, had my mother not just allowed me to stay in diapers full time. You could hold him back in Kindergarten in hopes that he will outgrow his love of diapers, but I doubt he will. If you don't really mind him being in diapers but want him to go to public school, you could compromise with him. If he would potty- train so that when he went to school in underware and stayed clean and dry while at school, you would allow him to wear diapers at home. This might even work to get him to not want to be in diapers at all, once he knows how it feels to be clean and dry for extended periods of time. If you don't really mind him being in diapers and you have the time, you could leave him in the diapers and home school him. If you want him out of diapers right now, you could do what a friend of mine did with his 6yo who would not give up his diapers. He put him in a cloth diaper and plastic pants and refused to change him or allow the boy to take the diaper off. The boy developed a severe diaper rash at which time my friend changed him but did not treat the rash. Everytime the boy wet or messed, it hurt him a great deal. When being changed, he was told that if he didn't wear diapers, the rash would go away. On the second day, the child gave in and begged not to be put in diapers. At that point, the rash was treated and the child put in regular underwear. The rash was completely healed in three days and the boy no longer wore diapers. Even though this method worked, I personally would never use it on any child. It is far too harsh and cruel. I think the compromise solution is the best. Whatever you do, don't try to humiliate him or punish him either physically or verbally. It will not work and will have a negative impact in his adult life. I wish you the best with whatever you try. If you want to talk more privately in detail about this, you can email me. Frank
This next one is from the "Toilettraining" Yahoo group. Let's hope he won't yield to his mother's expectations:

Subject: toilet training HELP!!!!!! My son will be starting kindegarten in the fall. He is 5. He has absolutely NO interest in toilet training at all!!!! I have tried bribery to every sort of angle. New underwear, clothes, toys even to offer to buy him a new car. When he goes to sit on the potty he never goes!!! He holds it for a long time. Just yesterday it was over 9 hours!!!! Does anyone have any advise? Please help I am at the end of my rope!!!! Thanks....
My advice? Keep him in diapers! Clearly it's what he wants to wear. I must say he's a little young for a new car, and he won't get to drive it for another 11 years anyway, but if even this doesn't get him out of diapers then pretty much nothing will.
A few samples of my diaper boy drawings are posted. If you want me to send you the entire collection of ../Images to date (over 500 .gif format ../Images, contained in 12 zip files), just submit your request here. The files will be sent one at a time and are, on average, about 500-600K.
