I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I was wondering if anyone had any advice regarding my 5 year old SD. We've been having some issues with her mother and therefore haven't been able to see her since the beginning of January, until this past weekend.
In January, she was with us for her two week break and she had a couple small accidents during the day. She peed a little before realizing she had to go, and she pooped once without realizing as well.
This past weekend, we had her for one overnight and she wet the bed. I very calmly just cleaned her up, no big deal. Her dad asked her if this was happening at Mommy's house too and she said yes. She's not always good at explaining how often but she said it happened a bunch of times there.
She's been fully potty trained since age 3. She was with us May-August last summer and never had a single accident.
What can I do to help her? It seems like the issue is getting worse and I'm worried that it's stress related. She lives with her mom but mom's new boyfriend moved in with them after three months and he's the one that takes care of her during the week, including bath and bedtime. She tells us she only sees her mom on weekends. We don't have a custody agreement in place now though we are working on making that happen as soon as possible. Her mom is definitely the type to act like everything with SD is going perfectly at her house, she doesn't share information with us to help us all create a complete picture of what's going on. In fact, I'm sorry to say it, but she really doesn't seem to be concerned much with her child at all.
Her mom hasn't allowed us to see her or really even talk to her in months, after we used to have her for at least one full weekend a month, all school breaks, and summer break. I'm just concerned, feeling more than a little helpless, and really wanting to do whatever I can to help my SD get through whatever is going on...
