Kids & Moving Help

Please help! My family is moving across country in a few weeks. I have 2 daughters, 5 and 10. I thought they were both excited- and of course a little scared-about the move. But since we found out, my 5-year old has been pooping in her pants. It's gotten worse over the last few days. She tells me she's fine and she's happy about our move, but I'm sure this is a sign she's afraid of something. Any advice on how to deal with this?? I don't know if I should call our doctor, or try a reward system for not having accidents or what. I can't even get her to tell m what's bothering her. Any advice?????

Congrats and good luck on your upcoming move! Your daughter may be experiencing some anxiety related to the move, but if it continues, I would consult a doctor. Welcome to the board! Make yourself a home.
