Yes 5 year old boys and girls should wear diapers.

Especially 5 year old boys they should be wearing diapers all the time because at 5 years old they can have wetting accidents and wet their pants before making it to the bathroom.

Having a wet diaper is much better than having wet pants.

I wish my parents made me wear diapers at 5 years old but sadly they did not.

Kids don't need potty training and if they want to use the toilet then they can but if not they should wear diapers instead.

Diapers are better than using the toilet and it's better to wet in a diaper at 5 years old, 6 years old, 7 years old, 8 years old and beyond than to hold the pee.

When I have kids they are never gonna be potty trained and will wear diapers all the time and I will change their diaper even when they are 8 years old, 9 years old, 10 years old and beyond as long as they live with me.

No toilets for them and diapers it will be.

I don't use the toilet anymore myself and use diapers all the time as an adult.

A 5 year old child should be potty trained in the day and not wear diapers in the day unless they have health issues.

Although there are some 5 year olds and even older kids who have autism or other health issues and cannot be potty trained.

So in those cases yes the 5 year old, 6 year old, 7 year old, 8 year old or anyone of any age should wear diapers if they need them.

But if the kid is just not potty trained then they should be taught to use the toilet by age 5 years old.

Most children do potty train on their own.

I was one of those children who never was potty trained by my parents or anyone else.

I eventually decided that I was done with diapers in the year 1992 when I was 4 years old and took the diaper off and went to the toilet.

My mom said she didn't potty train me because she struggled with potty training for my brother and figured I would just get it on my own.

If the child does not potty train by 4 years old then you should force the issue but it's okay if the child is still wearing diapers at 4 years old and not potty trained.

They will eventually learn to use the toilet.
