So my daughter is fully
Potty trained and is due to start school in sept. But recently maybe the last 4-6 w she has started to have accidents again!

What can i do?! She tells me she doesnt have time to get to the toilet or she knew she needed it but didnt want to leave the game she was playing.
At nursery she's worried she'll lose a bikd she was on if she gets off to go to the toilet and also tells me she coukdnt find a teacher to go. But im pretty sure they are allowed to just take themselves and theres always teachers about. I dont know whats going on but obviously this cant be happening when shes at school!
Any ideas!??

She knows that if she goes to the toilet someone will take her toy. This is normal at this age. Encourage her to go before starting an activity, or just to accept that if someone takes her toy she will get another turn later. It is really hard for them at this age though. Talk to her key worker. They will have seen it before.

Is it normal for children to still have accidents at school. Like what would happen if she did this in primary school. Ive spoken to her key worker and theyve obviously seen it before and can see its due to her not wanting to stop an activity or lose something shes playing with but they keep just telling me to enforce it at home. I am. But shes started doing the same. She'll dance around so i kno she needs to go but when i ask her to or prompt her to she just shouts at me that she doesnt need it. Then runs last minute or wets herself. Its so frustrating! she took over a year to potty train as she had to have full control of it. I couldnt prompt to go ever or shed purposly wet herself. She had to want to go all on her own! Just feel at a loss to stop this

It's not 'normal ' to still do this at school, but it's not unheard of.

Does she respond to reward charts?

Someone told me it does sometimes happen around growth spurts that they have less sensation.
If it happens at school they'll help her to clean herself up and send her home in spares or PE kit. She wouldn't be the first.
I'd think it v unlikely that she won't have got over it by September though whatever it is. Perhaps ask preschool to remind her to check before she goes outside for a few weeks?

Yeah im trying a new reward chart and ive also decided to try and cut a bit of sugar out her diet as i know when she has juice it goes through jer quicker than water so maybe that will help. Fingers crossed its just a phase and doesnt last long. Its just frustrating cos she knows. She does feel she needs it but seems to think she has ages to get to the toilet when she doesnt
