My 8 year old had been struggling for years with anything related to using the toilet. Wiping, actually going, etc, is a struggle. She will sometimes only go twice a day unless I force her. The main issue is her holding her bowels to the point where she won't go for days and by that time, she is so backed up it hurts to go. The doctor suggested more water (which is all she drinks), more fruits and veggies (which she really only likes to eat), even laxatives (which only causes accidents). Is this a normal thing? How can I help her understand its important to just go? I've shown her videos on the digestion process, explained using props... she also has meltdowns when I try to help her clean herself. She doesn't even like touching herself to clean in the shower. I'm so lost...

My 4 yr old is currently getting potty trained she has no problem doing wees in the toilet but only if she has no bottoms on with her pants or pull ups. If she can't c the pants she just goes there and then. But pooing she will not go in potty or toilet. She waits until she has a nappy on to do it

My son is 4. I'm trying to potty train also. No luck with pee or poop. Get him near the pool or piano and the bowels loosen. I bought a small keyboard for the bathroom. It allows him to at least sit on the bowl a while. 😕
