The Question:

My daugther is 5 and a half and she still pees in her pants often enough…should I be worried and how do I handle it. I get really mad and frustrated but I don’t want her to feel that frustration. Wondering if this is a medical condition I should look into?

The Answer:
Thank you for your inquiry. No doubt you have concerns as well as frustrations! I have been in this position before with my own step-daughter and I know how delicate the matter is.
I think it would not be unreasonable to see your family doctor and perhaps have a urine test done to be sure that there are no indications of a urinary tract infection that could be causing urinary frequency. That test is as simple as having her pee in the bottle — not too traumatic for a little one.
If there are no indications of infection, then I would suggest seeking a consultation with a homeopath. In the case of my own daughter, she simply was too busy to take the time to use the toilet. Once we sought homeopathic care for her, it became more of a priority for her to use the bathroom on time.
All it takes sometimes is a realigning of the system to allow the child to fully recognize the need to move a bit quicker towards the toilet! Having said all of that, there can be deeper issues at hand that influence a child’s toileting practices and seeking a full consultation with a health care professional such as a homeopath or family physician who will talk to her and address her emotional as well as physical needs will no doubt improve the situation. Good luck and thanks for asking!

Thank you so much for stopping by this page to get to know a bit more about me and why I started Parent Guide Inc. My business story started a way back in 2001... …after the birth of my first daughter, I realized that an "all-in-one" resource guide for parents was needed, and fast! I designed the New Parent Resource Guide to fill a gap in the community for busy parents like myself. The New Parent Resource Guide offers an A-Z of key contacts for parents, caregivers, service providers, and health care professionals.  Working with key businesses and organizations in the community, we have also compiled much-needed articles, tips, and charts to answer all your parenting questions. The latest addition to our family is the School Age Resource Guide to serve parents of children, 3 to 18 years!  This guide answers questions about: nutrition, bullying, curriculum, building self-esteem, and much more, as well as offering a full directory of local and national resources. The website offers an “all-in-one” spot for parents to connect, add their own blog, and find needed resources in their community.  It is a site that educates and entertains and if you can't find somthing just ASK me. I am here to serve YOU!  My hope is that you connect with our members, find comfort in their words, and share your own story. My goal is to see what I can do to help make life a bit easier for you.   You are why I do what I do! I can’t wait to get to know you!  Comment below to tell me about yourself – then start blogging so we can find out what makes you get up in the morning!  Check out my blog too and I am sure you will be surprised what gets me out of bed each day!!!
