Oh dear. DGD is four next week. Though theoretically toilet-trained (albeit somewhat late in the day), my DD and her partner are at their wits' end with her. She refuses to use the potty or toilet when asked, insisting she doesn't need to go or simply saying 'NO!' and then a few minutes later, wets herself. This behaviour isn't consistent - sometimes she will go to the toilet quite willingly, but it's the cause of so many battles and stress at the moment. We are at a loss to know how to help, though when we took her on an outing recently she did finally agree to use the toilet with me. DD is in a lot of pain and unable to walk much outside the house (fallout from last autumn's amputation and prosthesis not fitting properly), which makes life even more difficult.
Picking up DGD and plonking her on the potty or toilet doesn't work. It enrages her, of course. Sometimes humour works, but only occasionally. DD is trying star charts but with little success so far. DGD starts school in September.
We had toiletting probs with DD1 back in the day and finally got them sorted with the aid of a children's continence clinic, but I remember we were also at a loss how to cope.
Any ideas, anyone? Don't want this problem to get too entrenched!
