ITS BEEN YEARS, SHES 6 AND IN KINDERGARTEN. SHE IS DEATHLY AFRAID OF OUR BATHROOM AND CONSTANTLY WETS DURING THE DAY AND NIGHT. IM FED UP!!
I have tried every trick you could think of so im sorry but dont bother wasting your or my time by saying- "no liquids after 6pm, wake her in the nite and take her, pull ups, punsihment, praise/rewards" etc, I've heard and tried them all over the years and NOTHING HELPS!! She will use the bathroom elsewhere at times, but it's always a battle and it ends in tears and her hating me (usually a big meltdown and a fight)

MOST HELPFUL POSTS

Well Elizabeth, you said you dont want us to waste your time with "tricks" and then you say my comment makes no sense, and that it doesnt help you at all.



My point was why cause all the drama and tears? Let her pee herself, let her clean it up. She will learn real fast that going to the toilet is a lot easier then cleaning up her own pee and poo.



Ps it might be your tude thats the problem, Just saying. If you get that upset with me, how upset are you with your daughter when she has an accident? Or when she does make it to the toilet but doesnt actually go?

This is why your child wont potty train. Potty training is one of the very few things in life that children have control over.

She doesn't have to do a damn thing about any of this. She runs, cries and screams, I HAVE TO DO EVERYTHING ALL BY MYSELF. Not a damn person in my life is helping with the situation. I work 40+ hours a week outside the home, and she gets away with murder while I'm away and no one ever holds her accountable for her actions
