My niece is 13. She's been having some pain in her knees and we think it has to do with her being dehydrated so my sister told her to drink lots of water throughout the day, but, she has problems doing this because it makes her have use the bathroom several times during the day while at school. Problem is they only have 3min. between classes, which is not enough time to use the bathroom and get to class on time, and some of her teachers only allow 3 class-time bathroom breaks per semester. So basically she has to go during lunchtime or I guess hope that some teachers won't punish her for having to leave class.
Can you believe this?! I'd say it's an outrage personally.
Anyone have any idea's how my sister should handle the situation?
I'm thinking she should call the school and tell them this ridiculous. And that if she needs to she should convince the school to allow her daughter to use the bathroom as needed, like get her a note or something. But I'm sure they won't be too helpful without a doctors note or something.
I've heard that people should be peeing like 10 times a day and that we shouldn't "hold it," but I can't find any proof of this... does anyone know were I can find this?
