The Magic Answer to "I Gotta' Go To The Bathroom!"

"I gotta' go to the bathroom!

If you serve in Children's Ministry, you've heard those words hundreds of times.  And it usually starts a chain reaction.  Suddenly you have a line of kids saying "I gotta' go to the bathroom."

Sometimes it's legit and sometimes it's not.  How can you tell the difference?

Years ago, someone taught me a little answer that helps you know the difference.  When a child asks to go to the bathroom and you suspect they may just want a change of scenery, then do this.  Ask them to wait for 5 minutes.  If they really have to go, they will come back to you.  If they don't, then they won't.

Try it.  It works.
