shes very well potty trained but will not use a public bathroom because they are loud. she screams so loud, im afraid people think im abusing her in the stahl. i tell her i will not flush it but that doesnt work. she wont even sit on the seat without freaking out.
how can i help this because she wont even go in preschool. she holds it til she gets home and i tell her its not healthy.

Has she always been afraid of public restrooms or did she have a bad experience in one? I know a few parents that have started carrying post its with them, because the self flushing toilets have scared their children. If it's not just the noise, but the fear of falling in you can buy a folding potty seat. Just a few suggestions.
