My potty-trained daughter started having accidents
Q: My 5-year-old daughter has been potty-trained since she was 2, but in the last few weeks she has started having accidents. Nothing new is going on in her life so I wonder, is she just getting too busy to go, or should I call the pediatrician?
A: I think checking with your pediatrician is a good idea. There could be a medical reason behind her accidents.

Some children start having accidents because they’re upset about something. If your pediatrician sees no medical problems, I suggest you and your husband consider consulting a child psychologist for an evaluation.
