Ok... my 6 year old has started for about the last 5 months wetting on herself. Day and Night. She is an extremely sound sleeper so I can kinda see it at night however not during the day. I have tried everything from just talking to her, ignoring it, time out, taking what she loves most from her, whipped her (hardest thing to do ever and WON'T do that again), made her do all the laundry, and now I just have no idea what to do. Nothing has helped. Thought about doing a reward system where if she goes all day that we put a marble in a jar and when it is full or we have went so long that she gets a reward of some kind. But their are mixed emotions on that with my husband (step dad) and I. I did take her to the doctor and tested for UTI. She does not have one. She doesn't have the problem at school just at home. .... HELP please! I am just at my wits end.View Thread
We had problems about 4 years ago now with wetting and it took the doctors a year to figure out that she was constipated. She takes Miralax on the regular now. So she shouldn't be constipated and I am constantly asking her if she has pooped. I did have her tested to see if she had a UTI. And that came back negative. This has happened on and off a few times.
Emotionally..... I got married in October and we moved from WV to NC in December. New school and step dad. Hours away from her dad which I can see being an issue. I just don't know how to help her.View Thread
