Intentional self wetting

Please help me I have a two years old who goes to creche the whole day and does not wet hwe panties but as soon as she gets home and demands something that she can not get she wets herself and tells me after which is what she is not doing in creche. I know she knows this frustrates me. Please help me what do I do I trained her to tell me when she wants to peee but this seems fruitless on me but fruitful at creche.

Your little girl is very young still but she has certainly found a way to get your attention. The fact that she does not wet herself while at the creche means that she already knows when she needs to use the potty.It may help to put her in trainer pants when she is at home so she will know that it will not upset you if she wets them. Otherwise it often helps to walk away when she starts to cry and demand her own way about something and only return when she is quiet again. With time she will get the message.
