My dd is extremely clingy to her dad and i, shes been having a lot of accidents in her pants and shes been potty trained for 1 1/2 yrs. Shes acting out and biting kids. Shes normally very sweet and gentle. Yesterday she was at her aunts and cried hysterically when we picked her up. The one thing that jumped at me was she said "her cousins dad was going to b home". Shes rarely over there and her 6 cousins live there. Theyre fine with him but it made this stick in my head.
I asked her y shes scared of him n she says "because..."
I didnt want to put thouhts in her mind but i asked her what happened why were you sad there? And she said , "i dont want to tell you." within two hours today she had four accidents. And she NEVER has accidents.
I dont know if something did happen or what..
she goes to daycare in our home with my mom so shes not around new kids.
It may be separation anxiety because shes around us a lot and not around her aunt n cousins a lot... Or her dad and i split up about 1 1/2 months ago but were back together now.. I dont know if shes upset about that still..
How can i talk to her without feeding words and ideas to her at the same time??
Plz dont judge me either.

I would definitely go with a professional with this just to make sure and a child psychologist or councilor would be trained in communicating with children. I really hope it's something simple and not anything with her cousins dad.

So am I and I was abused as a child, children are resilient. It doesn't hurt to be certain :-)
