Our daughter just turned 5 years old and we are struggling with her going potty.
Meaning....she knows how to go pee and poop in the potty however still has accidents at Pre-K and at home. We talked with her teacher and she said it is typical and in line with the other kids at school as it relates to having accidents.
However....having said that our perception is that our daughter might think it is a game when we are at home?
For example....we ask her to go potty every 1 1/2 to 2 hours however in between those times she will announce she is wet and she is sorry. We have her change, make it a non-event and move in (she is in panties during the day and pull-ups at night).
Not an hour to two hours later the same thing happens.
We have tried stickers, m and m's, charts, rewards from the dollar tree and even trying to swing the pendulum the other way and take things away that are important to her.
For some reason she is not interested in any of it.
She doesn't like the rewards that she gets to pick out ahead of time and helps us gather up all of the things we are taking away. It's almost as though it is a combination of control and a game.
We don't get upset and are very patient. In fact we get it......in that it just needs to run its course and she will get there when she's ready.
Where we need your help is what to do next? How to handle? What to do? What do say?
You can only keep having your child change their clothes so many times....again the perception of a game to her?
Any help or feedback would be awesome. :-)
