Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Talk to her to try to figure out why it's happening. Is she not going when she needs to, or could there be emotional/psychological factors because of a recent big change in her life? If she doesn't give you any clues, you should talk to your pediatrician.
Her mom isnt involved very much and just recently went to prison. Her dad and I arent together anymore. But she started doing it a few years ago. Im pretty sure its an emotional thing. I cant get her dad to help with it I just called the school a month ago and they are trying to help. She needs some help. Her dad does not have medical for her, and he said he cant afford it. I have talked to her a bunch and let her know that kids will notice and make fun of her and it will be really sad when thye do. I just dont know what to do:( She never does it in bed its only during the day
Herafter father needs to get her on Medicaid. All states have either very affordable low cost or no cost health coverage for children. And, if her school has a counselor or psychologist, she should be talking with that person.
