My little girl is over 4 1/2 yrs old and has been potty trained since a week before she turned 3. everything was fine with the potty training and she took to it pretty quick. for the past couple months though she has been having acciedents at least three times a week. I don't know what to do. I work during the day so she goes to school. I told the teachers to take her to the bathroom every hour on the hour and that isn't even working. when she's at home even when we ask her to go potty she still has accidents. I have asked her doctor and they ruled out a bladder problem and there is nothing abnormal going on right now (moved to a new place, got a new teacher at school, anything not in routine).She NEVER has an accident with #2 only #1. I don't understand. I've grounded, bribed, lifted her spirits, tried to ignore it, everything i can think of and nothing works. She starts kindergarten in august and I really don't want to be dealing with this then. What do I do? I really need advise, all my friends have younger ones that are either barely potty trained or not long enough to be having the problems I have. like I said.... HELP ME!!!! Please!

My daughter was 5 before she quit having accidents. She was just too busy and dare I say lazy? She would pee her pants all the time. She STILL has them at 6.5.

I've tried that already, it worked for a little while then didn't work so much anymore. I made another one last night and am going to try it again, i just hope it works this time.

Well usually the first problem is that they are too busy to go to the bathroom. That's why they hold it.



I would try a rewards chart. Don't make it too hard. Try to make it if she goes one day without peeing her pants she get's a sticker, then raise it to two days and so on. At the end of the week she get's to do something special. Always make it fail proof and never take away stickers.
