I think it is normal for children to go through this. Both of my younger two were potty trained at three and then after a few weeks had severe setbacks and accidents. It can be upsetting as a parent because it can feel like they are doing it on purpose since you know they can do better, but I've found the best way to handle it is to simply retrain by taking them to the potty every 30 to 45 minutes, or reminding them to go. Just keep in mind that this is a temporary problem and your child won't be doing this at 14. It helps to keep problems in perspective.
It sounds like a little bout of regression. Just take 2 steps back and use some techniques you used when training her initially. Take her (don't ask her) frequently, use rewards to incentivize her, etc. Whatever worked for her.
Hmmm I'm not sure. My daughter never went through that but here is a bump.
