Yes 5 year olds and even 11 year olds and other older and younger kids are going to school now wearing diapers.

It is true that many 11 year olds and other kids are going to school in diapers and not being potty trained.

A friend of mine is a teacher in elementary school and he said that he has seen 11 year olds, 12 year olds, 13 year olds, 8 year olds, 5 year olds and 6 year olds wearing diapers to school and are not potty trained.

Some of the kids that wear diapers may even be wearing them without the staff of the school noticing.

Kids are getting potty trained later and later these days and having a child wear diapers to school is a good thing though as they won't need to use the toilet.

They can focus more on their school work and some kids won't need a diaper change until they get home as older kids can hold their pee and poop in longer.

There are really some 5 year old kids going to school wearing diapers.

My own 5 year old son who will be 6 in March is still wearing diapers full time and not potty trained and I'm okay with that.

He goes to school wearing his diapers which are the nearly plain white Gentle Steps size 7 diapers that are not really noticeable and nobody has noticed him in diapers.

His teachers don't even know about it and he holds off on pooping until he gets home.

The gentle steps size 7 diapers are very absorbent and it can hold his pee until he gets home for a diaper change.

He pees a little through the day and can actually hold it if he needs too.

He says he will give up diapers when he turns 7 but if not I'm also okay with that.

There is no harm in kids wearing diapers if they want too and it's healthier for them to just use a diaper instead of holding it and also the fact that many teachers won't allow kids to use the toilet when they need too.
