My first instinct is to wonder how she managed to be alone long enough to shit in her room, but children are little devils and will find ways to make you look bad, regardless of how attentive you are.

If she doesn't know to only go in a toilet then the fault is on the parents, not the girl.

My stepchildren (4 and 5) are both able to play in their own rooms without adult supervision. We still check on them every now and then, but they are pretty capable of not killing themselves while playing alone at that age

Yeah, the thing is, OP is the babysitter. Literally paid (or at least enlisted, perhaps not paid) to keep tabs on the girl. Common sense tells me that OP was a little too far away for too long, but again, kids are little spawns of Satan that will embarrass you at every turn through little fault of your own, so I'm giving the benefit of the doubt.

Unless she has developmental problems, that's a little old to not be potty trained. Where I live, children typically start school at age 3, and they won't accept them if they're not potty trained.

#12 that was my thought too. Many preschools or day cares where I live will accept children who are not potty trained, but usually four is a bit late. Now, I know every child is different, but almost all of the parents I know started training around age two

#12 I was thinking the same, hence why all the people saying, "shouldn't you be watching over her?" are getting thumbs down (or were). One would assume the child just had a dumb idea and it was to shit in her bedroom, because big girls spend a lot of time in there. (make up and stuff)

My mom runs a daycare and I have 5 nieces and nephews and have been around children my entire life. 4 is definitely way too old to not be properly potty trained. Unless she has developmental issues, as you said, than this is a problem. She definitely should know better and probably does.

You'd be surprised how many people don't start potty training their kids until they're three or older. I used to teach preschool, and I didn't have any two year olds that would potty reliably. Most of them hadn't even started learning yet.
