She started school 2 weeks ago and she has already wet her pants 3 times. Last year and the year before in K it was a once or twice a week thing. It didn't seem that bad for a K or 1st grader but 2nd? i took her to the doctor an Friday and they said nothing was wrong. I talked to her about it and she doesn't like to ask. I asked her why and she said she didn't know. They have a set bathroom break two times a day since she has been in school but she said she doesn't want anyone to hear her pee. I don't know what to do about this. I asked her isn't it worse to pee in your pants than to just ask to go? She refused to answer and I dropped the subject. I don't know how to help her. Once I got to thinking about it I can't even tell you the last time she asked me about going to the bathroom even on car trips. Clearly this is a problem. Can the school accommodate and let her use the teachers single stall bathroom to pee?
