    If a child has been potty trained, then starts having regular accidents at school, I believe that is a sign that something is going on.........

    It could be a million reasons, but your daughter may not know how to express what it is bothering her.

    Has ANYTHING changed in her world at all? New daycare, new teacher, new baby, new home, a death in the family, or ????

    I would take a hard look at your daughters world from HER eyes and see if you can figure out what is troubling her.

    I would also ask her pedi for a referral to a Child Psychologist - someone for your daughter to talk to and explore her inner feelings, because having accidents at school is a sure way to get out of school, be teased by other children and that could cause a new set of problems for her.

    Take care,
    -Kathleen
