My DD turned five in June. She's a sweet, caring, clever and friendly girl. She's my first born. I also have a three year old DS.
There are a few things about her that concern me but two things really worry me and I don't know what to do? She hides when she needs to poo and she won't sit on the toilet!!!
She won't sit on the toilet at all. She's fully potty trained for wees and dry every night but she still wears nappy's to bed because she's scared not to. When she needs to poo she runs away and hides. She either poos in her pants or we have to put her on the potty.
We've tried sticker charts, rewards, incentives, talking to her but nothing seems to work.
We took her to a specialist but I had a bad feeling about him. He didn't really listen to us and prescribed her laxatives.
I wouldn't be as stressed if she wasn't due to start school next year. What do we do?
She's never been to pre school.
I would be so grateful for some advice? I just want to do what's best for my girl.
