Default potty trained but needs help

Here is a silly question, but I'll ask it anyway! My son is 3 and potty trained but needs help wiping his bottom area. We are sailing on Jewel of the Seas in April and was wondering if the counsellors will help him in the kids club?

If they don't change diapers, I doubt they'll help wipe. But, am not sure. He does have a few more months to master the skill! It probably won't be an issue by then.

i seriously doubt it.
Keep helping him and he will get it. You have a couple of months

Many ships give parents of those under 5 years beepers when they enter them into the kids' program. I'm not absolutely sure if this is the case w/Jewel of the Seas. If they do give you a beeper, perhaps they'd beep you when he has to go to the bathroom...

I too have a three year old who will be going to his first kids' program and April -- I totally understand your concern!

Smooth sailing,

Well he is not likey to do #2 everytime so don't sweat it too much, and no , they won't wipe his bottom for him, you could ask that they " remind " him to " do a good job wiping" . If not, well bring lots of undies and do laundry.
If they have the beeper system then you really have no problem, you can just go and do it.
As pointed out you do have some time to work on this issue with him.

I remember that stage well. In fact my 4YO still doesn't do a great job of wiping. Bring along disposable wipes and diaper rash ointment. It helps sooth that area when it hasn't been wiped well.
