My daughter has been through a major trauma, and it has effected her extremely. She has been regressing, and it seems like nothing I do helps.I have no idea what to do, she'll be turning 3 years old in a few days and she's regressed to when she was a year old. She is getting into mischief with things she fully knows better and has know better for a long time, such as writing on the wall. She hasnt done that in over a year. She's been potty trained since roughly a year old, she potty trained herself, but now every time i discipline her and send her to her room for time-out, she use the washroom on the floor, and not just pee either.She's doing it on purpose, she takes her pants right off and everything, and she only does it when she's mad at me. I have tried cracking down on her, (in a non-violent way of course) that didn't work. So I tried to be supportive, and had conversations with her. Talking to her, explaining to her that it's ok to be upset. That hasn't worked either. One thing I haven't and will NOT try is physical discipline. I don't agree with it and I'm not about to start. I really need help, desperately, but please respects the fact that I'm anti-spanking.
