How have others responded to this question? I hate it when people ask me it- almost like I am not doing my duty as a parent. My daugher is almost 3 and occasionally uses the potty. We reward her when she does. The problem is she has trouble with her bowles. She getts constipated easily due to a lot of food sensitivities. The doctor has us giving her stool softner every day and an anema once a month. This causes her pain, stinging and diaper rash. As most kids would, she associates these feelings with going to the potty. So is afraid to poop. I know that she will get it in time (my son wasn't trained until about 3 1/2). Its the constant critism from others that really hurts. I need some snappy comebacks to shut people up so that I don't have to respond by giving them her whole health history. - please help!!!
