Verb tenses Hi, there Which of THESE sentences is right? (potty-training a child) : “If having his pants down WOULD help him get it done, I was going to let it be” or “ If having his pants down WAS GOING TO help him get it done, I was going to let it be” Thank you

Either way i think saying "i was fine with it" or "I'm fine with it" sounds more natural than saying "i was going to let it be." If you say "i was going to let it be" sounds like you are implying that you did not "let it be" therefore you were not "fine/okay with it".

The second sentence is the more correct one I believe. But I don't fully understand what you are saying. Do you mean "If his not wearing pants at all helped him get it done, i was going to let it be."?
