Kelly Rutherford and Daniel Giersch Reach Agreement in Court on Potty Training Son
Kelly Rutherford and her ex husband Daniel Giersch continued their custody battle of two-and-a-half-year-old son Hermes at Los Angeles County Superior Court yesterday.
The couple are fighting over a list of other parenting issues, including when Hermes, who is set to enter preschool this fall, will be potty-trained.
Yesterday, the couple agreed to have their son wear a pull-up diaper and begin potty training when he "desires."
Kelly, who is about eight-and-a-half months pregnant with the couples' second child, said her son began to "change" when his father tried to potty train him.
"He was coming home saying things. I was starting to see definite changes in him," she told Usmagazine.com outside court. "One person can't make that decision."
When asked if she and her ex-husband could have an amicable relationship, the mom-to-be said:
You know things aren't good when you have to go to court to agree on when to potty train. I can only imagine it will only get worse when the new baby arrives...
