My SO has a daughter from a previous relationship who has mental set backs. She has '18 P' syndrome which mimicks autism a lot.
Her mother insists she will just let her start using the potty "whenever she is ready" but she is 5 now and isn't going to use it if no-one makes her!
She doesn't listen to me AT ALL but listens okay to her father.
She is only at our house every other weekend, but his mom is at their house a lot and is willing to help get her trained.
What things can we try to get her to start using the potty? At least at our house because buying diapers for a 5 year old is rediculous.
She won't use pull-up's because noone has taught her how (we tried). She thinks peeing and pooping on herself is funny because someone has to change it and clean her. She knows to lift her own bottom in the air when you are changing her.
It is getting on my last effing nerve to tell the truth and my SO's as well.
