Hi, I just joined this group as I was doing a search to find (hopefully) an answer to my granddaughter who wets her bed, plays outside and wets her pants. I have 5 children and they are grown and I never had this problem so don't know what to do??? also as I was reading I seen other parents that have young children who are very stubborn and tempermental this describe mine as well and she has even done it at school. People say Iam lying that she is a good girl and so loveable but they don't see her in her mood, she will yell at the top of her lungs, cries,screams like someone is beating her. Doctors all say there is nothing wrong with her. I wondering if the tantrums and bed wetting could be connected? also we have had her since she was 15mths and she doesn't have much contact with her mom. Any advise? going crazy mama

Hi, personally, if the doctors have said there is nothing wrong with her, I think it is just a matter of being spoiled, when she doesn't get what she wants she acts out. I have a nephew that does that exact same stuff and he is almost 9. If you personally feel it is more I would go and get a second opinion. If not, I think that she needs to start to go in time out for 6 min (the amount of her age) and sit for the whole time, if she screams or yells, or gets up, you start her time over, she will eventually get sick and tired of sitting and want to get up, you do that for about 30 minutes straight. IF that doesn't end up working after a few weeks, then you need to start taking the most important things to her, away from her, tv, movies, games, toys. Also I recommend giving her prizes for going to the restroom IN the toilet, stickers, a cookie, something small but exciting. Another thing, ast 6 they are learning to write, another form of punishment is sentences (my kids hate them) but, I will make my 5 year old write me 35 sentences depending on the punishment for example, she will have to write, I will not yell at my mom anymore, 35 times. It is starting to help, they would much rather sit and play instead of write sentences trust me. She might just be acting out for attention, but you need to be stern and consecutive, don't punish her one time for something and the next time not, it is going to take some work but you will get there, just have to stay strong and positive.
