Period In School Dear BeingGirl Experts, One of my friends asked the teacher if she could go to the bathroom, and the teacher said no, and then she told him it was a girl thing, but the teacher still didn't let her go to the bathroom!! Why? What can we do to get them to let us go to the bathroom?? P.S: The teacher was a male if that helps. P.S.S: We also have this school rule that we can't go out of the class room during class but still!!!! Thanks, bye Claire --- Dear Claire, If the school rule says that you can't leave the room, then you have to make a stop at the bathroom during the times that you can, whether you think you need to at that time or not. In most situations in life, you have to plan to live by the rules. If you think that this rule needs exceptions, then you would have to talk with the principal to find out if the rule can be changed to give the teachers more leeway in allowing an exit from the classroom.
