  • Since it's only during TV, I doubt it's an infection. It sounds like the classic "I forgot" or "I was too busy playing" problem. It's very common for that to happen even into grade school. She simply does not want to leave the TV so she holds it and holds it until it's too late. Classic.

    When you turn on the TV, turn on a timer for 15 minutes. When the timer goes off, turn off the TV and make her go try. Don't rely on her being willing to walk away from the TV to pee. Tell her "It's time to go try". And refuse to turn the TV back on until she does try.
