First, she needs a complete physical with her pediatrician, possibly including a workup with a pediatric uroligist.   If she has been diagnosed with ODD, you need to talk to her psychiatrist about this issue.  Going to the bathroom in inappropriate places like on the floor or furniture is a symptom of sexual abuse.  If your child is eligible for Medicaid (Title 19) she may qualify for in-home services, including respite care for you.  Contact your local Social Services office and ask about the Medicaid Waiver.  Good luck.
