keep explaining it to her, go in and make sure she is doing it right. Maybe reward her with a sticker when she does it right.

keep explaining it to her and show her.  btw, they can't fully wipe themselves properly until they're older.  my dd "wipes" herself after peeing but has trouble wiping her bum because she can't reach that far.

I have to watch my DD (3yrs old) while she goes to the bathroom... She'll skip wiping if I don't. My mom used to tell me that if I don't, worms will start growing there! Haha. Debating if I should start that with my daughter.

My younger brother  had that issue and my mom wiped his butt until he was 6 yrs old. I would just keep showing her and having her practice. Maybe giving her a small treat for doing it all by herself to reinforce the behavior.
