I'm expecting my first with my fiance who already has 1 DD, 4 years old, of his own. However, he also takes care of her stepsister, 8. They both come over and stay with us every other weekend..
Since my fiance and I have been together, the SS has always had an issue of wetting her pants. Last summer at summer school, she had to change almost every day. Her mother has talked to her about it, my fiance has and I have too. We tried to explain that she's going to get made fun of for peeing and pooping in her pants. She says she doesn't feel it, but the other day while out shopping she was squatting on the floor. I told her twice to get up off the floor and when my fiance finally had to tell her, she stated rapidly that she had to go to the bathroom. It's like she's embarazed to say she has to go.
I thought the going in the pants was bad enough, she's started to lie about it and other silly things. She begged us to watch Frozen because she's never seen it. As were watching it, she turns around and says I already saw this movie.
We have to sit her down every other Friday and tell her that she'll get something good if she behaves. By Saturday morning she's breaking the same rules. I'm getting exhausted from telling her the same thing every other weekend and having the same results.
Is it just the age?
