My 5 year old will not stop using the bathroom on herself.

I do not know what to do anymore. i've tried everything from little treats to taking toys away. when I ask her why she just says, Because I pooped on myself" or I didn't get up to go the the bathroom. This is so frustrating. I tried to tell her that she can't do that once she goes to school next year. The kids might make fun of her. Any help?

Make her clean herself up, including taking a shower afterward and putting her clothes in the washing machine.  Try to stay out of it so this doesn't become a power struggle.

Good luck!

it sounds more or less like she is rebelling and she can clearly see that this is getting a rise out of you. next time she does it firmly tell her

" what do you want me to do about it ? get some clothes, get a shower go put those clothes in the hamper and be prepared to wash them.'

once she sees that she isnt getting that shock value out of you she is going to realize game is over.

 I agree with this.
