My five year old stepdaughter refuses to wipe herself after using the bathroom, especially number 2. One night she was so upset that she sat on the toilet crying and screaming for her dad for over half an hour. He finally gave in and did it for her. I'm wondering if this is normal behavior? I try to encourage my husband to teach her that he will not always be there to wipe her after she uses the restroom. Now that he has quit, her underwear gets frequently dirty. A few times she peed and didn't wipe and pulled up her pants. Any advice? She now has an infection down there and her tantrums can get so ugly!!
