I am a former classroom teacher that has had experience in the preschool, elementary and highschool settings but mostly taught in middle school in the United States. My favorite teaching years were the three I spent teaching science in a specialized setting for twice-exceptional kids in Middle School Science and Highschool biology. I am now a home educator for my 7-year-old daughter and nanny part time. I have a book I am working on publishing and a children's book.

I would actually need more info to properly answer this one. Does it bother her to be poopy? Does she notice? Does she go and squat in a corner or does she just poo where she is? The answers to these questions have to do with determining "readiness."

I remember mention of a similar study at a conference I was at that showed a correlation between children growing up on farms and around farm animals as being less likely to have allergies later on as well. Same hypothesis - different animal set and exposure. Interesting.
