hi my 4 yr old daughter has been potty trained since she was 2 1/2 and started off amazingly, she went about 2 weeks straight before having an accident, she never liked the potty and just went straight on the toilet, then about 1yr ago she went completely down hill and very rarely has a day now where she has dry pants.
she is now 4 and is due to start school in september, we have tried everything from ignoring it to reward charts and then trying to ask her if she understands where she does her wees and poos, she answers on the toilet so she is aware that she need to go to the toilet but she just wont!
we have taken her to see a specialist @ the hospital as we thought it may be something pysilcally wrong but they have just said everything seems fine and to keep trying. this was 10months ago and the problem is getting worse ans it has now turned to her soiling her pants now or even doing it on the floor, she also hides this and if we say have u still got dry pants she will say yes then go upstairs and take her wet/dirty pants off.
we had a new baby in feb 2010 and we thought this may have affected her but thinking back the problem started before we had our new daughter.
please please help as we our so frustrated and dont know what else to try
