  • I would talk to her pediatrician. He/she could give you the best advice here.

  • I think you need to call someone to get you help on how to parent better.

  • Sorry but it's because YOU are letting her. Take away the diapers and pullups and put her in panties. You can't keep her out of school forever because she won't potty train. Do you plan on homeschooling her? Get rid of the bottle for the 2 yr old too.

  • Don't let everyone bash you. There could be a physical or developmental issue that is causing the delay. Make an appointment with the pediatrician and have her evaluated.

    When milestones are missed, most of the time it is of NO FAULT of the parents. That usually is an indicator that there is something going on that need to be addressed.

    Hugs mama.

  • A 6 year old should not be wearing diapers unless there's a medical reason that prevents them from going to the toilette. A 2 year old shouldn't need a bottle either.
    Is this question a joke too, I have to ask as I type this answer.

  • There are deeper issues with this kid. No 6 year old would WANT to be in diapers. There just may be a medical or psychological problem going on. I would look into it much deeper. Good luck.

  • There's got to be something going on as to why she feels ok with peeing and pooping and sitting in it. It's not normal for a child that age to be ok with that. Also, why haven't u transitioned the 2nd old to a cully yet?

  • You are being lazy. Take away the bottle, don't give in. Deal with the tantrums. Put her in panties. If she messes, she cleans herself. It is actually work.
