Two weeks ago DD (27 months) had a potty accident at church(in a diaper that I put on her, though, just to be safe). She has always been pretty perfectionist-like and she freaks if she has an accident. She's been afraid of the toilet flush ever since we went to a restaurant that had a loud and quick flush and I guess that's why she had the accident in the first place (the only option is a tiny but real-like toilet).
So anyway, the called us back there and she was a total mess. She was also mad because a teen helper that she didn't know tried to pick her up to console her. Then, this week she refused to be left alone and cried. She NEVER cries when we leave her - people comment all the time how nice it must be. It's a good gauge to know if she feels safe or not. But now she's fearful and won't go. We don't leave her if she doesn't want to be left (which is rare), but now I'm not sure how to move forward with this. Also, the sunday school teachers are really sweet and helpful so I would highly doubt that her new timidness had anything to do with the teachers.
The week when she had the accident and we were talking to her about it she said she'd prefer a little potty toilet that we could bring with us. We did that, and she went potty with my husband there in the same room as the toilet and even flushed it after dumping the stuff in and she was totally fine with it. But when it came time to leave she freaked out. So yah... help?
