Would You Go to Court Over This?

I have to admit, when Kelly Rutherford first became pregnant and at the same time started divorce proceedings from her husband, Daniel Giersch, I had never heard of the Gossip Girls star. But the more I find out, the more I dislike this woman. At first she came out saying that she’s still breast-feeding her toddler son, which is just gross. I’m sorry, I know it’s controversial but in my humble opinion, it’s gross. Now it seems that’s not the only issue that she’s having with her son. There’s a huge legal battle going on over custody and one of the issues that was brought to court – yes, I said brought to court – was potty training. Yes, I said potty training. Okay, I know people get stupid when emotions are involved but is it really necessary for a judge to preside over potty training? From US,

“Gossip Girl star Kelly Rutherford and her ex husband Daniel Giersch continued their custody battle of two-and-a-half-year-old son Hermes at Los Angeles County Superior Court in Santa Monica Friday.
The couple — who filed for divorce in January after two years of marriage — are also fighting over a litany of other parenting issues, including when Hermes, who is set to enter preschool this fall, will be potty-trained. (Rutherford has also told Us she continues to breastfeed her son.)

Today, Rutherford and Giersch agreed to have their son wear a pull-up diaper and begin potty trainingwhen he “desires.”

Rutherford — who is about eight-and-a-half months pregnant with the couples’ second child, a girl — said her kid began to “change” when his German businessman father tried to potty train him.

“He was coming home saying things. I was starting to see definite changes in him,” she told Usmagazine.com outside court. “One person can’t make that decision.”

When asked if she and Giersch could have an amicable relationship, Rutherford said: “I don’t see it.

“I have tried everything,” she continued. “I have tried mediation. It is too bad for our son.”

Amir Pichvai, the court appointed child attorney for Hermes, said the parents need to work together to “avoid confusion to the child” on the potty-training issue.

Their next custody trial dates are set for July 23, 27 and 28.”

This is just another parenting issue in a long line that concerns me on the part of Kelly Rutherford. I understand that children need to be ready to be potty trained but I think that some parents take it too far and wait for their child to say exactly, “I want to take my diaper off and go in the potty and you’re the greatest parent that’s ever lived” before they start to think about potty training. Honestly, I think kids are a bit more subtle than that and parents sometimes choose not to see it. I also think that you should take another look at yourself as a person if you can’t even handle a simple issue like potty training between two grown adults. And I’m sorry, the kid changed after trying potty training? I find that very hard to believe. Lots of parents try potty training unsuccessfully at first but don’t make it out as though their kids became a completely different person. Please. I’m so over her.
