My boyfriends daughter in kindergarten and she pees herself sometimes how can we stop her from that? She said she didn’t want to go to the bathroom.

    Daniel Tiger has a good potty training episode that might(?) help. Season 2 Episode 1. They address the fact that you may not want to stop playing, but you have to pause and go to the bathroom.

    Have you tried night lights? Or leaving the bathroom light on? Sometimes it’s just the whole darkness issue. Another thing is try to have her sit on the toilet before bedtime for like 10 minutes. And the episode of Daniel tiger mentioned above is really good.

    Oh okay. When my daughter was having that issue I would make her sit on the toilet every hour for 10 minutes even if she said she didn’t have to. Pretty soon she got tired of having to sit there so she started making sure she went as soon as she felt the urge. That’s what work for her.

    There's another Daniel Tiger song about going potty before going out. For my 5 yo, I still reward him for good behaviors (marbles in a jar), so sometimes it's for stopping an activity and going potty. He also is more likely to go if I say I need to. And then I also tell him I can pee more than him and he hates to lose and counts really fast. When I'm desperate, I offer him a minute on my phone for every second of pee. His accidents have decreased but he definitely waits until the last possible moment before using potty. At school, ask the teacher for an extra opportunity to go before or after lunch.
