my friend has a daughter that's 4 who is pooing her pants she will be 5 in November. She doesn't know what to do any more due to her older child she never had this problem.. I watch her kids from time to time and the pooping has not stopped she has taken things from her and it doesn't do anything she has even put her in diapers and that has not stopped. she asked me for help and i'm clueless to what advice i need to give her. the pooping is everyday all day long and she took her to the doctors and its nothing to do with medical problems the doctor said it is pure laziness. she has ruined clothes and underwear and we both are very frustrated because no one likes the smell of poop. can y'all please help this is costing her and me money that we do not have ... i have a four yr old of my one who has no problems making it to the bathroom . we try to use my daughter as a inspiration but it does nothing we tell my friends daughter if she don't poop in her pant she can get a surprise but it don't help please help us we are desprate for the help

If she has to thoroughly clean the poop out each and every time and is not allowed to play until the pants are clean... each and every time... she's likely to get bored of cleaning poop all day real fast.

If her mom really wants the situation to change she is just going to have to be matter of fact w/ her daughter and let her know that she is a big girl now and when big girls have accidents they are the ones that have to clean them up and no playing can happen until the mess is clean because otherwise the pants are ruined and mom will have to spend more money on new pants, so there won't be any money left over for toys and things.

Yes I can get her daughter to do it but she has a hard time getting her daughter to do it for her . and that still doesn't work

Has she made the 4 year old responsible for washing out her own clothes in the bathroom? That would be my first suggestion.
