My 7 yr old step-daughter still wets herself, not regularly but often. A lot of the times she says she didn't want to stop what she was doing, (playing or reading) to go to the bathroom. A lot of times we will tell the kids to go to the bathroom before we leave house but she absolutely refuses and then as soon as we get out of the driveway, she has to go and can't hold it. What can I do?Answer Question

OP- Has she lived with you a long time or is this recent? The toileting acting out and the not listening sound like there may be something else going on. Does she have contact with her bio-Mom? First I would rule out any medical reason. Then I would sit down and tell her straight up "there is no reason you cannot get to the toilet on time. From now on you will lose a privilege every time you wet your pants. " Then the hard part is sticking to it...every single time.
