Alright, I've had a lot of trouble trying to potty-train my daughter since she was 3 1/2. She still has daytime accidents, at school, and at home, and she still needs to wear diapers at night because she has constant nighttime accidents at home. The problem is. She tends to want to play until the last second before she bolts to the bathroom, sometimes she has a accident on the way there, sometimes she makes it, but, she almost never gets her clothes off in-time, she rarely ever uses the potty. When she does manage to get clothes her off, I sometimes notice that her undies have a wet spot on them from her peeing herself a little, and I have to change her into new ones. Now, she's recently started to pee herself without even trying to make it to the bathroom, whether it's just enough to wet her panties, or, enough to completely soak her clothes, she does not seem to care; I think it has to do with this new toy I got her.... I've tried everything to pull her away from playing so that she can go potty on the potty like taking her toys, or constantly reminding her, but, nothing seems to work. One thing I started doing fairly recently is only putting her in skirts and dresses so that she can pull her undies down faster. I've taken her to the doctor multiple times, and nothing serious was found, the doctor just said she might be too focused on playing. When I ask her if she does it on purpose, she says no, and, I just ask her what to do when she wants to go potty, and, she responds with "tell mommy". When I asked the doctors for advice, they all gave me the same advice, saying that it would probably be a good idea to just put her back in diapers for a little while, and try to re potty-train her. It seems like that's the only reasonable choice at this point, but, does anyone know how to bring that up to her, or, does anyone have any other suggestions I could try before, or, while I'm doing so?
