My 9 year old daughter hates going to the toilet to do number 2's. She is fine doing a wee on the toilet tho. This has been going on for a few years and i keep thinking 'it will go away and she'll just go to the toilet normally'. But it hasn't! This is causing a lot of stress and worrying for me. She is a beautiful girl, smart, has lots of friends and very thoughtful - but turns the whole house upside down when she hasnt been to the toilet. She fights with her brother a lot, screams at all of us and gets extremely emotional.
Would a paediatrician be able to help her in any way? Or should i be seeing another sort of doctor? Any advice will be helpful.
