This is not a new thing. 70 years ago I remember asking to go, told no, and sat there with a pool at my feet. Never again did I go into class without going to the loo first. My teacher, Miss Rogers, apologized to me, as she thought I just wanted to get out of that lesson which she thought I didn’t like. She went out of her way with me and taught me how wonderful that lesson was and that is what I remember these days, not that I had a puddle beneath my chair. Children have to learn how to control their bladder and sometimes they never learn till they get to school because mum always lets them go when they say. It has happened for many years and will happen for many more.
