Time to go wee

My 6yrs old has a problem going to the loo to make a wee SOMETIMES. She time and again just decide to wee on herself  when I ask her why she’ s doing it she tells me that she did it because she was busy playing and didn’ t have time to go to the loo or she was watching her favorite tv programe and didn’ t want to miss it while she’ s gone to the loo or the toilets at school were too filthy and she didn’ t want to use them… 

I tried talking some sense to here, explaining that things aren’ t done that way…  that it is unhygienic to urinate on herself whenever she feels like.

I would like to think she has some medical problem however what bits me is why is this only happening on certain occasions. How come in some other instances she’ s able to go willingly to the loo too weewee and sometimes she just chooses not to.

Do you think she needs some medical attention or something is just wrong in her little mind?

Please help?

Pls note that she seldom wed the bed at night. If it happens that she wet the bed I get convinced that it was indeed an accident as she is normally able to wake up and go to the loo.

The main point in your question comes towards the end when you mention that your daughter does not wet her bed at night or indeed very seldom wets her bed.She seems to get lost in concentration at times and may well have a point when she says that the school toilets are not clean.She needs to establish a regular routine and should go to the toilet every day when she gets home from school.Start a star chart, she gets 3 stars in a row for not wetting herself during the day.Once she has achieved 3 stars in a row move up the number of stars by one that she requires to get her next reward. Have her urine checked just to be sure that she does not have any sign of a bladder or urinary system infection.
