Although you may be right on target with the attention-seeking behavior, changes in urinary habits can sometimes signal an abusive situation. How is her other overall behavior? Her physical condition? I would inform the parents, and see what their response is. Has something changed at home? It's probably nothing, but if you do get that little tickle in the back of your brain that tells you something isn't right, do something about it. It takes guts, but if you're protecting the child, it's worth it.
