I have a little girl that is 4 and will be 5 in August.  She is signed up to go to school in the Fall and I am afraid that she will not be ready when it comes to her accidents.  She has been potty trained since she was almost 3 and has not really been consistant for awhile.  For about 1 year she was great... not even wetting the bed at night.  Then, about 6 months ago she started peeing in her pants again.  For about 1 month she was also pooping.  Luckily that is over, but the peeing thing is going to make me and my husband loose my mind!  We have tried everything!

Took her to the doctor to see if she has had any infections.  This last time she did, but every other time...no.  We have also tried to give her special attention, positive reenforcement, special trips and days out.  We have prayed with her about it, talked with her about it, and yes even punished her for this.  We have no idea what is going on and need some advise!  Please help me!  Thank-You!

Many times kids do fine at school, even when they don't at home... Just the different environment, knowing mom isn't around to help them change, doing what all the other kids are doing, the novelty of using the school bathroom, whatever it is... So don't borrow trouble and try not to worry.
