I adopted my husbands children. My daughter is 7 years old now. Her father has told me she started holding in her poop around the age of 2. I came into her life when she was 5. I have taken her to the doctor several times for this issue and she is given miralax twice a day. She still continues to hold it. When she does poop, she plays with it. i have found it on her clothes and walls. She put her hand in the toilet and plays with it. She put poop on her earring in her ear and it got infected and has also put in her mouth and got a severe infection. She is a very smart girl, she has good grades and enjoys learning. I have had problems with her stealing from girls at school and from us, and lying. i can't tell the difference anymore. I am also concerned with how she treats her brother and sister sometimes, i dont knoiw if it normal sibling stuff. Her and her brother hoard food and have the biggest melt downs if they dont get what they want. My husband thinks it is normal kid stuff.... as a mom...Im concerned and scared. Help!
