“My oldest daughter at 21 months, we merely suggested that she use the toilet in the other room and [she] never wore another diaper beyond that,” Bell revealed on the newest episode of Momsplaining With Kristen Bell. “We were lying in bed giggling about this, my husband and I, like, ‘Why does everyone make a big deal out of this potty training?

“Yes,” Bell admitted. “Because every kid is so different.”

“Doing school work with them, it is absolutely miserable,” she explained on a previous episode of her talk show. “When we started this quarantine, the first math worksheet I gave my daughter, in all the answer lines she wrote, ‘No. No. No. No. No.'”
She continued, “There are a few people that have come out victorious in this situation though. Germaphobes, stay-at-home moms, they’re all like, ‘I told you how f–cking hard this is.'”
