My boyfriends 6 1/2 year old daughter still wets and poops herself. She has wet and pooped herself at school and said that the reason she did it was they wont let her go to the bathroom, which i know is not right. She has now went to wetting herself every night and even wets herself in the middle of the afternoon. What can I do?
Rule out medical reasons, I guess, and then try to approach it by looking at her life and identifying why she might be having anxiety. I'd talk to her pediatrician first. Are you in any way allowed to do this, or is it all going to be up to her dad?
