Help!! 6 year old pooping pants

My dd has started pooping herself almost daily! She has never been fully potty trained no matter what we try, rewards or discipline. She doesnt even care what we take away from her!! It is like she has no attachment to anything.

  • You could try making her clean out her panties herself. Put her into reg. panties and when/if she dirties herself have her clean herself and then rinse her panties in the toilet herself. It worked for our autistic son. It is no more dirty for her than for you! Make sure she washes her hands well after.

  • My son was fully potty trained, but started having poop accidents when he started kindergarten. Took him to the doctor and she said he was probably just to excited and not paying attention to his body. Anyway, we added more fiber to his diet and have him sit on the potty 2 times a day. This has helped greatly and accidents are infrequent now. Good luck. I know it is so frustrating.
