Miss 4 was toilet trained at 2.5 years. After 4 months she regressed and it has been a struggle ever since to get her to go to the toilet during the day. She stays dry at night and will cry if she needs to go. I know my temper doesn’t help the situation but I’m at my wits end. I’ve tried rewards and consequences but nothing works. Thanks for your help.

  • Just one of those things you gotta wait out patiently to happen on its own. The more its a big deal the harder it will be and longer it will take.

  • Your daughter could have a kidney problem, which means she may be passing very little urine and won’t feel as though she needs to. If she is close to kidney failure she will make very little urine. I would seek an urgent Doctor’s appt.
    She could have an urinary tract infection and may be putting off going if she is getting a burning sensation. A few years ago I had a UTI with no classic symptoms. It was diagnosed after persistent vomitting over a few hours, then a spike in temperature.
