HELP! My 5year old poops in her pants says that she doesn't want to stop playing or whatever she is doing to go to the bathroom. This "laziness" just started she has never had problems like this before.
Find out if something is bothering her. Is a new baby on the way? Does she feel she needs more attention from you?
If it's just her being lazy, make her go before she plays with her toys, and every hour after that. ...If she still does it, take away the toys.

I agree with annonymous. Find out if something is bothering her or if something has happened. And put her back on a "potty training" type schedule. Set a kitchen timer and have her visit the bathroom once an hour.
