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 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:

“I don’t see it.

“I have tried everything,” she continued. “I have tried mediation. It is too bad for our son.”

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…
