My daughter was fully potty trained by February of 2009 and just this past February she has been having accidents after accidents. It is never when we are at a store which is usually the most inconvenient time to potty. She on the other hand wants to go every store. She has a fascination with the sinks and clean hands. Her issue lies more at night and at daycare. I can see accidents at night however she didn't have them for a year. Now I dont know what to do. We have tried all sorts of reward systems and punishments. I can't handle it. She is going to be 4 on Monday and I don't know what to do. She starts preschool in a real school environment in the fall and I can not have this. We drove all the way from NJ to Disney in July and not one accident and we drove straight through with minimal potty breaks. She did great.
Well first of all, don't punish her for having accidents. Even though she is going to be four there are always going to be accidents and some regressions. A child can have accidents up until the age of six, so it's going to happen whether she was trained for an extended period of time or not.
Even though she was trained, still try to make it a positive thing even if it makes you frustrated and angry. I have to remind myself to do the same, so you are not alone in that. I have found in some of the ladies stories here where there is some regression aroundthrre years if age where they all of a sudden regress and have accidents. I have no idea why it happens but it could just be an age thing and a phase.
Continue to make it positive for her as much as you can and continue to encourage her to go in the potty. She'll get back on track again way before preschool again. I promise.
