My DD, who is 7, still occasionally wets herself at home, but mainly at school. She has development delays, but since 3 has been totally toilet trained.
Accidents only started happening since last year. She would average once a term maybe? She just doesn’t go to the toilet. She feels the urge but is either distracted by playing or I hate to say it, but just plain lazy. I still have to tell her 6/7 times a day to go. Any tips on stopping this? I’ve taken her to OT’s, peadeatrition, physio – they all agree it’s not related to her development delay.
Nothing has changed at home or school. And what worries me more is that she’s starting to be teased at school but doesn’t care. Kids tease her for having wet herself and almost always she doesn’t wipe after poos unless someone tells her to, so quite often you can smell it on her. She understands she needs to go, she feels the urge, but seemingly would rather wet herself and stay in wet pants then get up and go to the toilet. Any ideas or anyone else been through this? She is totally dry thru the night too. Just seems to me like she’s being lazy and can’t be bothered going to the toilet at school or at home. I have toddlers recently toilet trained and they are mortified when they have an accident. They’ve had maybe 3 accidents since being toilet trained. Please other mums can you give me some advice or tips?
