DD has been toilet trained for 2 years. We have had a few accidents in that time, but nothing too dramatic. She's recently taken to producing large puddles on the carpet upstairs. I know that she waits too long and is so desperate she just sits down to try and hold it in. The puddles occur when she is too late! I just don't know what to do! Her urine is clear of infection, she gets really cross if I spot signs and ask her to go to the toilet, I don't punish her, I praise her when she goes on the toilet. I'm at a loss!!!!! Also extremely fed up of cleaning the carpet!!! Help!!!!!!

dd started doing this at primary in year 1. I was told she had regressed as she was having emotional problems.

Is there anything concerning her, any changes.

She honestly suddenly couldn't feel the urge to go, and just did it.

This could be a way of getting your attention as children will seek positive and negative attention. When she makes a puddle on the floor just clean it up without reacting at all ( even better is to totally ignore it but this depends on your flooring). When she goes on the toilet lots of praise.
