That girl does drive me crazy.
Although she has been potty trained for well over a year, the girls still potties and poops in her pants. It is not every day, but definitely at least a couple times a week and sometimes more. It has pretty much been like this since she was officially trained.
A couple months ago we felt really bad about punishing her when it ended up that she had a urinary tract infection. So the next time she started the multiple potty "accidents" I took her right in to the doctor. Nope. No infection, just choosing to potty in her pants. And so it goes. Her reasons? I was playing outside. I was in my room for my rest time. Aagghh!
Our latest creative attempt to cure the situation? She has it in her head that she wants to go to McDonald's. So, we cut her a deal. If she can go five days in a row with no pottying in her pants we'll take her to McDonald's. This afternoon she went poopy in her pants. She was on day three. She has been on day three two times before this.
She cries when we give her spankings. She cries if we take something away. She cries if she is sent to her room. But, she does it again. I have no idea how to handle the situation any more. She is just about four. This should not be an issue. What do I do? Have you had a child like this? I need your help. What would you do?
