My little girl wil be 5 in a few months and still has problems with going #2

She was recently diagnosed from a pediatrician with endocresis which makes it 10x harder for her to go

I am at my wits end on this; when she soils herself she does not care and can leave it on there for awhile and it never bothers her.

I have tried everything (stickers, bribing her), and giving her treats when she does go #2

and people told me years ago girls were easier to potty trianer-HA!!!

My husband is very little help and leaves everything on me!!!
We both work ful time but here's the kicker she never has accidents at school (maybe once a month) but she waits to get home to have at least 1-2 accidents at night and tons on the weekends when we are home with her; we do force her to get on the toilet after meals

ANY ADVISE IS GREATLY APPRECIATED!!! FROM PEOPLE HAVE EXPERIENCED SOMETHING SIMILIAR THANK YOU

I think your daughter needs a natural laxative to help her go more regularly and without any discomfort. Sometimes a symptom of constipation is doing a #2 without knowledge. If you could manage that area a bit better she may be encouraged to go to the toilet.

I think personally though that this is a mind thing for her, if she is not doing it in front of her peers then she does have some control! I think possibly it is an attention thing for her. What happends when she does this at home. Do you tell her off or do you just change her. Even telling her off is giving her attention. My advice is to not say anything. Ignore her once cleaned and dont mention it at all. Go back to what you were doing, no eye contact no verbal communication, clean her up and ignore her. Monitor this for a few days and see if this has any impact on her at all. Then you can work from there.

My daughter had accidents ALL the time. She was 3 though and they were urine accidents. She still had them at 5 too. The doctor didn't seem too concerned though.

If your daughter has a condition then what can you do? It's odd that she doesn't have accidents in school, but does at home.
