My daughter is 4 yrs old and has been out of nappies for over a year now, she has a potty in her bedroom for night time and uses the toilet in the day (She has flooded our house twice so we lock the bathroom door when she goes to bed) she just cant seem to keep dry!! When we first started potty training we did the 20 minute return technique and it worked she was dry most of the time with the odd accident. When she started nursery in September 2010 there were a few accidents but nothing I was too worried about. The problem I have is that her "dry spells" never seem to last, she can go a month with maybe 1/2 accidents and then have 20 in a week!
The worst thing is that she pees on my sofa or on the floor and wont tell anyone, it doesn't seem to bother her that she's wet. My furniture is ruined and I really don't know how to deal with it. I myself was a very deep sleeper as a child and wet the bed until I was 10 so I don't want to come down hard on her as thats the worst thing to do but my frustration levels are gettting higher and I can't afford new furniture. Please help!
