The problem with "under" is that the roll is usually on a wall below one's chest. Definitely makes it more difficult to reach under the roll to find the end, and then to rip it at the seams nicely.
If the roll is on the wall above head level, then maybe "under" wouldn't be so unacceptable.
I really want to see where the rip will be, so I can see where the next tissue starts.
Yes, I've thought about this a lot, with as objective a mind as I've been given.
Besides the cat thing, I have not found a convincing argument for "under" being superior. I'd like to hear one, if it's possible.
try potty-training 11 kids....
if it's on the roll so that it comes over you go through WAY to much toilet paper....and I HATE uncloging the toilet after some sweet 3 year old decides they need half the roll to wipe.
If it is under they do not pull the whole thing apart, thus they do not flush the whole damn roll!!!!
same thing with paper towels, I don't leave them in there for the kids anymore either after one little darling flushed 20 paper towels at a time (you try cleaning that mess up!)

It's actualy really easy. It has an awful lot to do with enthusiasm on the adults part.

Possative reienforcement is one of the biggest motivators for kids, sooooo
When one of the children successfuly uses the potty we all jump, clap and do the potty song and dance...
(Deleated because it was posted suficiantly long enough to compleatly mortify me.....)
Basicly as the adult doing this I have absolutly no shame. It's rather embarassing but it works wonders for possative reinforcement for the kids, and because all the kids are involved in the song and dance the peer relationship really helps things along too.
granted Potty training is far more than just a song and dance, but that is the most fun part.
(If anyone actualy wants some tips, PM me, I really have potty trained that many kids)
